Skills & Strategies for Grantmakers

The philanthropic field continues to evolve and more attention is being given to new models of operation, collaborative practices and a balanced approach to measurable outcomes. Understanding the balance of grantmaking strategies within cultures and context is vital. Likewise it is critical to understand how to leverage resources to maximize impact, enabling your organization to more effectively execute your programs and serve the communities in which you work. 
The Council invites you to participate in a skill-building session that will help you understand strategies and methods of working that can enhance the impact of your grantmaking. It will be led by Council President Maggie Osborn. 
The session will help participants understand:
  • The changing role of philanthropy
  • Strategies to foster positive outcomes and drive foundation impact
  • Involvement and actions outside of the grantmaking framework for achieving philanthropic goals 
  • Key strengths and constraints of each strategy. 
Participants will take away:
  • A more complete sense of the ways in which resources of the foundation, staff and partners can be leveraged for maximum impact and strategies, thinking and resources to begin to act on this knowledge.
This session is part of an ongoing series of skill building workshops being offered to provide grantmakers with the knowledge, insight, skills, and tools to be effective in their work. Each session will be exclusive; participation in all sessions is encouraged but not necessary. 
Free for members of the Connecticut Council for Philanthropy
$150.00 fee for non-member grantmaking representatives
