The Tulsa Symphony Orchestra has succeeded where its predecessor failed, in part because leaders created a new model for the organization. Some of the keys to its success are self-governance, community engagement and transparency.

The leaders of the Tulsa Symphony Orchestra created a thriving organization in their community by re-imagining the traditional model. They offer lessons that could apply to any community organization.

Helping congregations have more meaningful and creative conversations about resources

A free toolkit from the “Shifting Ground” initiative, “Let’s Talk About Resources” uses case studies, games and reflective discussion questions to facilitate creative conversations about how congregations can use their resources in service to their local community.

It can be used online or in person. These resources were co-created by Lake Institute on Faith & Giving and the innovative design team at RootedGood.
