DESCRIPTION:

What is grantmaking? What are the main components that make up grantmaking in a foundation? What resources, approaches, and tools does a foundation employ to leverage for impact?

Grantmaking 101 will kick off a series of trainings focused on the skills needed to run a foundation and be an effective grantmaker. This two-day workshop will provide a high-level overview of the world of philanthropy, including:

  • Types of foundations or giving programs, the landscape of charitable giving in our region, and trends in the sector
  • The “science” of grantmaking: financial and legal basics
  • The “art” of grantmaking: due diligence and best practices for eliminating barriers to nonprofit impact
  • How the history we’ve inherited as grantmakers interrelates with our work
  • Philanthropy’s “great debates”

 

Join us for the remainder of the series, which will offer a more rich deep dive into the various areas of grantmaking…
