For staff and trustees of grantmaking organizations
Presented by the Greater Hartford Funder Network
This group provides a forum for grantmakers who are located in or funding in the Greater Hartford region to come together, exchange information about news and topics of interest in the region. Members share knowledge and best practices, hear from guest presenters, and learn about new and ongoing activities, initiatives and areas of philanthropic engagement.
We will highlight the work of Lectio, a Harvard-based consulting group, that will work with key community stakeholders in Hartford to conduct an impact analysis around early grade reading resources. Kelly Kulsrud, Executive Director of Lectio and Jane Crowell, Assistant Director Department of Families, Children, Youth and Recreation, City of Hartford, will provide an overview of the project, which includes a comprehensive, community-wide programmatic inventory of key data and a three-day summit in Hartford with providers and stakeholders.
We will also highlight some data-sharing projects in Hartford. Several regional initiatives have a focus on data sharing as part of their plan. Learn about what they’re doing and how funders can support secure data sharing, alignment, shared measurement, and improved outcomes. Scott Gaul, Director of Research & Evaluation at the Hartford Foundation for Public Giving, will lead this discussion.
