Foundation professionals have relatively few opportunities to discuss their accumulated experience and expertise with one another. The Senior Fellows Network program of the Synergos Institute identifies talented foundation leaders from vanguard philanthropic institutions worldwide and links them to a global learning and service network, with the goal of strengthening foundations in the developing world. Fellows serve as peer consultants to foundations around the world; their work produces knowledge on trends and innovative models, which Synergos distributes to a wide audience. A Lodestar grant helped underwrite an annual meeting of the Senior Fellows and supported the development of a marketing plan to promote the Senior Fellows Network program to the foundation community.
