2020 New Grantmakers Institute | Grantmaking for the 21st Century

Sessions begin October 22, 2020!

If you're new to philanthropy, or interested in sharpening your skills, NCG's signature program, the 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 now a part of.

In this six-week series of weekly trainings, participants will get a 101-level introduction to the art and craft of grantmaking. You will have the opportunity to hear directly from seasoned philanthropic leaders and become familiar with the opportunities facing philanthropy today. In addition to top-notch faculty, participants will begin to develop a network of peers as we grapple with what it means to practice effective and equitable grantmaking in the context of a global pandemic, the Black Lives Matter movement, and climate change. This series of workshops will also guide you towards resources available to support your continued professional development as you get started in the field.
