Join the Center for Effective Philanthropy (CEP), Northern California Grantmakers, and peer leaders at foundations throughout the Bay Area for a data-driven discussion of what it takes to build strong funder-grantee relationships. At the convening, CEP Vice President, Research, Ellie Buteau will present findings from Relationships Matter, a research report CEP released in November that shares what nonprofits see to be the most powerful ways that foundation program officers can strengthen funder-grantee relationships.

Following Buteau’s presentation of the findings, CEP President Phil Buchanan will moderate a discussion with Emiko Ono of the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation and Jackie Hausman of the Kenneth Rainin Foundation. Ono and Hausman are two of 11 program officers whose grantees provided high ratings about their funder experience through CEP’s Grantee Perception Report (GPR) — and whose insights about how they view their role and what they believe it takes to be a good program officer are highlighted in the report. The session will include ample time and opportunities for questions and discussion, and will be followed by a brief reception.
