If you're new to philanthropy, or interested in sharpening your skills, NCG's signature program, New Grantmakers Institute (NGI): Grantmaking for the 21st Century, helps build your understanding of best practices for ethical and effective grantmaking, and helps you place yourself within the ecosystem that you are a part of. In this two-day, highly interactive training, participants have the opportunity to engage with your peers around the opportunities and challenges of grantmaking within the current day context. In addition to developing a network of peers, participants will have the opportunity to hear directly from seasoned philanthropic leaders and become familiar with resources available to support your continued professional development.
