About

We are constantly learning. The J.W. McConnell Family Foundation is dedicated not only to funding impactful initiatives, but also to understanding how philanthropy can introduce adaptive capacity and make change to social and environmental systems. We strive to innovate, and a culture of learning allows us to experiment with new approaches in order to generate lessons about what works and what does not.

To create 12 Lessons Learned we reflected on some insights from our 2015/16 year and worked with an artist to distill them into graphic form. We hope that by sharing them online we can contribute knowledge about how change happens. We want to start a conversation with you: What do you think of our learnings? What did you learn about social change this past year? Tweet your #12lessons to us on Twitter or send us an email at communications@mcconnellfoundation.ca
