Professional Development

NCG provides professional development and networking programs designed to meet the needs of philanthropic professionals at all levels as well as grants management, communications and support staff.

New Grantmakers Institute. This annual professional development program helps foundation staff who have less than 2 years of experience learn about best practices for effective and ethical grantmaking. It’s also a great workshop for grantmakers who are seeking a refresher on the basics of grantmaking.

Corporate Philanthropy Institute. This annual conference features speakers, panels, breakout sessions and other opportunities for corporate grantmakers to network with their peers.
