For any CCP member who has responsibility for program implementation and grants management

Join your colleagues for a special skill-building workshop designed to help program officers better support their grantmaking decisions internally and externally and increase the impact of these funding decisions. Modeled after Maggie Osborn’s nationally known “Skills and Strategies for Grantmakers,” this workshop will review important skills and strategies for your grantmaking.

CCP will provide light refreshments and ample time for discussion throughout this very interactive training. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own lunch.
