What exactly does capacity building mean? How are other foundations supporting grantee capacity? How can funders use data to inform decision making?
Let's Talk Capacity
Funders are invited to join the Foundation Center on April 27th for a journey to build your own strategic capacity and learn to support grantees' capacity, too.
First, Foundation Center Vice President for Strategic Philanthropy Lisa Philp will demo the new Foundation Maps Professional 2.0 and show how data can inspire smarter learning and decision making.
Then Director of GrantCraft at Foundation Center Jen Bokoff and David and Lucille Packard Foundation Organizational Effectiveness and Philanthropy Director Kathy Reich will discuss aspects of the recent GrantCraft publication Supporting Grantee Capacity: Strengthening Effectiveness Together to explore how foundations can be thoughtful about capacity building investments with grantees.
Come learn new strategies for capacity building and share your own funder experiences with your peers.
