A Message from the Executive Director

For thirty years, The Fieldstone Foundation has provided grants, leadership development, and service to nonprofit organizations working to support people in our communities of Orange and San Diego Counties. From the beginning, we looked for organizations doing impactful work and being guided by a visionary and values-based leader. Our grantmaking created opportunities for honest and respectful partnerships that, in turn, helped to inform our knowledge of the sector and the pressing needs of those leading our nonprofit agencies. This experience led us to develop The Fieldstone Leadership Network as a vehicle to invest in an organization’s leadership and expand the types of support we were able to offer the nonprofit sector.

Believing that nonprofits do serious work that supports those in most need, while enhancing the community for all, The Fieldstone Foundation is dedicated to providing leadership development and learning opportunities for nonprofit executives and emerging leaders that build, deepen and sustain personal and professional relationships among nonprofit leaders so they are better able to collaborate, problem solve, and support each other as they work. Built on a continuum that allows a person to develop his or her own leadership capacity within various program formats, cross-sector and reciprocal learning opportunities, and a vibrant collection of their peers, The Fieldstone Leadership Network is now in its twentieth year of programming.

It has been said that “dramatic and systemic change always begins with critical connections.” At Fieldstone, we aim to provide those places and pathways for critical connections to occur naturally so that nonprofit organizations can continue to lift up and improve our world with efficiency, effectiveness, and a generosity of spirit.

It is a privilege and an honor to do this work. We invite you to join us.
