At the foundation-level, this tool is designed to inform practice. At the field level, results from this tool will be aggregated to provide a broader perspective on how foundations are engaging in community leadership efforts.Updated June 2021: Now includes a crosswalk with CFLeads' Framework for Community Leadership. More details about this crosswalk can be found in the Guidance section of the document, and throughout the Community Leadership Assessment Tool.Take the assessment online at candid.org/howwelead.
