Peer Networks

Peer Networks

Peer Networks are spaces for MCF members who work at the same type of foundation or have similar job responsibilities or social identities to come together to connect with their peers, exchange information and learn from one another. Each peer network has in-person meeting opportunities and an associated online community on the Hub. MCF support for peer networks is a member benefit.
