For an organization laden with seminars, policy programs, leadership development initiatives and conferences, the August, 2005 launch of the refurbished Web site for the Washington, D.C.-based Aspen Institute was more than a welcome addition.

Within in the next five years, the COF probably will be known as the COP. Steve Gunderson, president and chief executive officer of the Council on Foundations (COF), said there have been enough changes in his first six months on the job without a name change to the Council on Philanthropy. “I think we’re doing enough change…Let’s take this one step at a time.
