A retreat opportunity for Foundation Executives

Summit is the foremost opportunity for foundation executives, FFE Board Members and FFE Alliance Partners to spend dedicated time among peers. The outcome is an enhanced network of executives with whom you can connect and advise throughout the year and a greater understanding of the work of some of our Alliance Partners and how they can elevate your operations.

We are excited to return to The Cape in Cabo San Lucas for the 2023 Summit program!

Save the dates for 2023: January 16-19, 2023


Summit is beneficial for the top 1-2 professionals of a fraternal foundation as well as the FFE Board of Directors and invited Alliance Partners.


The think-tank atmosphere and intimate environment of Summit allows executives to step away from the chaos of the day-to-day and focus on the strategy behind their important work. Program speakers may include university presidents or advancement leaders, nonprofit consulting firms, and other industry leaders.


Summit curriculum is focused on executive-level fundraising and leadership.
