Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Our cities are hurting. They’re broken. They’re divided. They’re in dire need of change. And no matter how many plans are presented to fix them, one thing is abundantly clear: those plans will never work without the right relationships. Deep, human, catalytic connections that fuel transformation. The kind of bonds between Leaders that enable tough conversations and unorthodox approaches.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Leadership Foundations harnesses the power of relationships in cities throughout the world. Because when the right stakeholders come together, their efforts are amplified, creating a force to be reckoned with. A multiplier of change. That Together Power is what turns adversity into opportunity. It’s what turns battlegrounds into playgrounds. It’s what turns despair into hope.

Leadership Foundations accelerates growth, multiplies impact, leverages proven strategies, and provides a spiritual community to amplify positive change in cities.

- Accelerated Growth: We train, coach, and provide resources to leaders giving them the best possible chance to succeed, while utilizing their limited resources in the most efficient manner

- Multiplied Impact: Mobilizing 40 cities, LF’s coordinated network takes on the biggest challenges facing our cities

- Proven Strategies: Tapping into 40 years of experience, LF distributes proven processes, all while freeing local leaders up to solve the unique problems in their city

- Spiritual Community: Leading by faith we serve with love and compassion building catalytic bonds that fuel real transformation

GLOBAL SCALE
LF is a growing network of 40 plus Local Leadership Foundations from around the world with another 30 interested in membership.We not only generate and test new ideas for transforming the way cities serve people in need, but to see those ideas applied to meet real-time, systemic community needs on a global scale. LF has access to ideas from on-the-ground experts from around the world and can efficiently learn and scale what works, and then distribute models and training to serve hundreds of thousands of people in need.

BRIDGE TO FAITH COMMUNITIES
Faith communities are increasingly understood as a critical broker for social capital and community engagement, and therefore their role as community impact partners is in higher demand. Because LF is a faith-based organization that has worked with both faith-based and community-based partners for over 40 years, the LF begins with the credibility to demonstrate and distribute best practices on faith-based community engagement to any and all potential partners. Similarly, LF is in a position to credibly translate ideas from the private, public, and social sectors into meaningful efforts within faith communities.
