Phil,

These groups bring a perspective that is not included in the general membership. Groups like the Asian Pacific Fund, AAPIP, Latino Community Foundation, and Horizon Foundation are not based on geographic criteria but ethnic or lifestyle specific. COF has done a terrific job in trying to include these groups.

Thank you, Dien. Working with first generation money, as it transitions to philanthropy, networks are key. New givers need to connect with other "like themselves." This can be hard for new givers whose connection with giving may be through a tax advisor who sees it mostly in financial terms. How open are the COF networks to new members who are just getting engaged with giving and who may not yet know their way around?
