About Us

We believe communication matters. Organizations that communicate well are stronger, smarter, and more effective at creating change.


The Communication Network supports foundations and nonprofits to improve lives through the power of smart communications.


We envision a world in which nonprofit organizations and foundations use innovative and effective communication programs to advance their missions, improve lives and deliver social change.


The Network is a nonprofit organization comprised of social sector leaders from foundations, nonprofits and consulting firms across the globe who share the belief that smart strategic communications have the power to transform society and improve lives. Founded nearly 30 years ago by the late Frank Karel of The Robert Wood Johnson and Rockefeller Foundations to help social change leaders improve their work and “get the word out”, today The Network is the premier leadership organization for nonprofit communications professionals.


The Communications Network’s Board includes senior leaders from some of the world’s most consequential social change organizations. Among them: Ford Foundation, The MacArthur Foundation, The John S. & James L. Knight Foundation, The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, The Pittsburgh Foundation, The Annie E. Casey Foundation, Lumina Foundation, and The Duke Endowment.
