“Lessons Learned: One Association’s Journey to Build a Non-Profit Foundation”
Last year, ACTFL—the largest association in the world for language teachers—decided it should launch a foundation. But why? How?
In this AFG webinar, you’ll learn the entire story of how The Language Connects Foundation came to be. You’ll hear from three key players: the new Director of the foundation; a fundraising expert guiding the development strategy; and the marketing firm that gave the foundation its name, brand, and messaging.
This webinar will explain the thinking behind each key milestone in the foundation’s creation — from the initial seed of an idea through planning, branding, hiring, technology, and launch. You’ll hear specific examples of the mistakes that were made, the successes that were realized, and the lessons learned along the way.
This is ideal for any association professional with an interest in launching a new foundation or taking their current foundation to new levels of influence and prestige.
By the end of this session, you’ll know how to
- Map out the important milestones for designing and launching an association foundation
- Design your foundation’s brand
- Launch your foundation with as much pomp and circumstance as possible (on a budget)

Andrew Buck, Associate Creative Director, Mighty Citizen
From an early age, Andrew has been obsessed with words—considering a mastery of language key to mastery of thought. That’s why he studied English and Communications at The University of Texas before beginning a long career in the world of nonprofit marketing and fundraising. Eventually, he combined his love of words with his love of performance to become a software trainer, traveling the country teaching fundraisers how to better manage their data. At Mighty Citizen, Andrew plays a dual role: helping craft our own marketing content and partnering with our clients on a variety of content projects—including research, messaging, strategizing, branding, and content governance.
