Transforming Knowledge into Change

Learn Foundation Law

The legal staff at the Packard Foundation, Gates Foundation, Hewlett Foundation and Moore Foundation developed this free, first-of-its-kind resource, which covers the basic legal rules around what staff are allowed to fund and engage in at a private foundation. It takes less than an hour to complete and features “Maya,” a new program officer that leads participants through the course. Participants can also return to the training at any time for a refresher and click on the individual modules to refer back to specific topics.

The goal of the course is to supplement existing in-person workshops or trainings that legal counsel at foundations already provide to staff and it is intended to be the first in a suite of free training resources for private foundation staff.
