Is Revolve a part of the Schusterman Foundation?

While we all continue to be members of the Schusterman Foundation alumni family, Revolve is an independent enterprise: we hold the keys to our community now. Three part-time professional staff make up the leadership team, charged with setting and executing the vision and direction of the community. They are supported by the Advisory Council, an advisory (non-governing) board whose members contribute their expertise in fundraising, strategic planning, community building, and non-profit management to enhance the overall functioning of the organization.

Revolve is a designated fund of the Tulsa Community Foundation.

What’s going to be the same? What’s going to be different?

We’ll still be the same community. You’ll experience the same radically deep conversations, the same invigoration from being together, and the same grounding in Jewish values and values-based leadership development. Our events will include activities and traditions we’ve valued as a community.

A few things will feel a bit different. As we move from a community that primarily received programming, to one with the opportunity to create its own programs and events, our focus will be much more on communal experiences. We’ll be asking for leadership from each other in new ways; for example, the vast majority of our programs and events will be peer-led.

How does Revolve communicate?

We send out newsletters and emails approximately twice per month. If you’re not already on the mailing list, sign up now! However, all of the latest announcements and information will live on our website, so you can rest assured that if you’ve checked out this site, you’ve got the latest details!

What’s happening with #MakeItHappen grants?

#MakeItHappen grants are managed by the Schusterman Foundation, not Revolve, but lots of community members have had this question! The Make It Happen grants aren’t going away but are changing: the Foundation will be running dedicated campaigns for Schusterman alumni to make proposals for funding around specific themes, rather than having an open pool throughout the year.

Revolve will also offer opportunities to secure funding for events throughout the year, through three Local Program grant cycles.

Who is a member of the Revolve Community?

Anyone who participated in the Schusterman Foundation’s Reality Israel/Leadership, Pro, or Global experiences is a member of the Revolve Community.
