Thank you to all of the Leadership Forum graduates who generously supported our annual campaign and helped us reach an all-time high of $75,000! Our first Community University program was a great success with over 150 leaders and graduates in attendance and the Forum Reunion was a great evening of networking and camaraderie. We are grateful to our 2018 Leadership Campaign Chairs, Carrie Potter and Rosa Maria Villagomez, who led us to new heights this year – they have set the bar high for 2019! Special congrats to the Fall 2000 class for most funds raised and to the Fall 2015 class for highest participation to date!

It is not too late to support the Center’s campaign, though – all funds support CHF’s ongoing strategic projects and enhance our ability to engage and connect our Leadership Forum alumni by:

  • With lead sponsorship from Wells Fargo, CHF is launching Community University this year, a new program designed to highlight the work of our Leadership Forum graduates by showcasing the impact of their learning journeys. Your contribution will support the development of this program, as well as other new innovative programs for graduates of the Leadership Forum (to be announced later this year).
  • Your support will help us further our work on many new strategic initiatives, including our project on the economic impact of immigration and Houston’s inclusive economy, an examination of the future of energy, and a project on post-Harvey community resilience. You will be hearing more about these projects in the coming months.

Thanks again to all that have supported the Graduate Campaign! As of 6/20, we’ve exceeded our goal of $75,000!
