Presented by the Program Officers Network

This member group is comprised of individuals, from large or small foundations, who have responsibility for program implementation and grants management. Meeting on a regular basis, discussions are designed to be interactive and constructive. Participants have the opportunity to connect with colleagues, ask questions, explore solutions, share knowledge and best practices, and learn from one another.


Join your colleagues at the next Program Officers Network meeting to understand how to support the financial resilience of your grantees so they may achieve impact over the long-term. Rodney Christopher and Gina McDonald from Fiscal Management Associates (FMA) will lead a discussion on assessing financial resilience, financial health indicators and funding the true cost of program delivery. This meeting will include an overview, interactive discussion and actionable steps for your work that can support strengthening your grantee relations and outcomes.


Rodney Christopher brings to FMA more than 20 years of consulting and grantmaking experience in the nonprofit and philanthropic sectors. His primary work with FMA is to provide training, consulting and coaching under the arm of Philanthropic Advisory Services, which are designed to build the capacity of funders to engage with grantees about their financial needs.
