For members of the Connecticut Council for Philanthropy and Exponent Philanthropy.
For smaller foundations, targeted grants and activities, such as convening, collaborating, commissioning research, and spotlighting issues, can—at the right moments—make outsized impact. This is a chance to step back and look at your grantmaking through the lens of leverage. How can smaller grantmakers be on the lookout for opportunities to leverage? Are there ways to achieve more from the grants you currently make?
Join members of the Connecticut Council for Philanthropy and Exponent Philanthropy for a workshop to explore ideas and best practices on how small funders can make a big impact. In this interactive session, participants will share knowledge and examples of high impact philanthropy with their peers in the Connecticut and New York region.
Participants will learn:
- Actionable steps to implement into their grantmaking work.
- A mindset or "eye" for finding opportunities to leverage.
- Twenty grantmaking strategies to make a difference at a small foundation.
