JTFN Long Term Outcome Report 2019

The Jewish Teen Funders Network (JTFN) launched the Foundation Board Incubator in 2014 to seed and support the sustainable growth of community-based teen foundations globally. This report demonstrates key findings from an End-of-Program Survey and a Long-Term Follow-Up Survey completed by Foundation Board Incubator communities during the 2015–2016 and 2016–2017 program years and Long-Term Follow-Up Interviews with 21 of those teens. Long-term follow-up surveys and interviews occurred 1.5 to 2.5 years after teens’ initial board experience, depending on which program year in which they participated.

The Foundation Board Incubator is a project of the Jewish Teen Funders Network, generously funded by Laura Lauder and the Maimonides Fund.
