  13. 13. To prepare for these emerging needs, organizations may have to start challenging some of the fundamental orthodoxies of community philanthropy. These orthodoxies — deeply held assumptions about “how things are done” — often go unstated and unquestioned, and can become PROBLEMATIC BLIND SPOTS.
  14. 14. But remember those MAYBE INSTEAD OF JUST CONTINUING TO DO THE JITTERBUG, YOU COULD TRY KRUMPING* TOO.

  17. 17. As with most things, it helps to have some guiderails when embarking on a new journey. LOOK OUTWARDS for context to understand the changing global and local landscape. LOOK AROUND for inspiration to see what’s already possible. LOOK INWARD at current practices to understand your own organization with a fresh lens. GET TO ACTION by developing and testing new approaches. that can help community philanthropy organizations innovate. FOUR KEY BEHAVIORS We’ve identified
  18. 18. LOOK OUTWARDS LOOK AROUND Follow emerging global and local trends and assess what they might mean for your community. And at the same time, make sure you have a good understanding of who is already serving your community. Innovation doesn’t need to be completely new, it just needs to be new to you and your community. Look to “bright spots” already emerging inside and outside the field, and don’t be afraid to copy shamelessly.
  19. 19. Challenge orthodoxies and blind spots that are keeping you from recognizing new opportunities, and actively build a portfolio of the roles that are right for your organization and community. Move to action by creatively generating new ideas and then prototyping the approaches that show real promise.You may want to creatively think about how you play roles that are at your organization’s core, or you might think about “scaling edges” that could matter more in the future.Today’s sideshow could become tomorrow’s main act. LOOK INWARDS GET TO ACTION
