For foundation leaders, program staff, grants managers, communications staff and any foundation staff that shape funders’ work with grantees.
Please join us for this two-part program that includes an interactive workshop and a post-program follow-up call with the presenter. This program will explore strategic and practical approaches to developing stronger relationships between you and your grantees. This program is for foundation leaders, program staff, grants managers, communications staff and any foundation staff that shape funders’ work with grantees.
Building strong funder-grantee relationships should be at the heart of every grantmaker’s work. How are your relationships with your grantees? Research from the Center for Effective Philanthropy (CEP) shows that there can be a wide gap in perception between funders and grantees. Many grantmakers believe they have great relationships with their grantees and yet many grantees continue to report inconsistent or mediocre experiences working with foundations. CEP’s research report, Working Well with Grantees, demonstrates that there are specific funder practices and processes that matter in developing high-quality interactions with clear and consistent communications that grantees value highly.

Following up on the January workshop about research and practices related to working well with grantees, a call is scheduled for Tuesday, February 24th from 10 - 11 AM. It will focus on getting past any barriers participants encounter in efforts to have your organization do the best possible work with grantees. Prior to the call, we will solicit your successes, questions and/or challenges. On the call the Center for Effective Philanthropy will strive to highlight further research or case studies that address those questions, and we will turn to examples of participants’ successes for further advice and momentum.
For this call, please register to attend. We encourage participants to ask a colleague or ally in organizational effectiveness to join the call with you.
