Encouraging connections that lead to new ideas
At Bader Philanthropies, we believe no one person (or organization) is an island. That’s why we encourage our nonprofit partners to forge new ideas and approaches to common challenges.
We also believe peer interaction can challenge us, keep us on top of innovative efforts and spark interest in new areas. To that end, the Foundation and staff have long been active members in a number of professional networks, including those listed below. If you’re a donor interested in getting involved, we encourage you to learn more these organizations.
