Giving and managing grants can often be an isolated “learn-as-you-go” experience. While an instruction manual for effective philanthropy has yet to be written, this two-day “Grantmaker 101” workshop provides individuals responsible for grant funding decisions with the tools and resources to increase the effectiveness of their grants.  The course outlines specific strategies to help refine the purpose of your giving, practical skills to enhance the practice of your giving, and peer-advice to develop relationships which will maximize the effectiveness of your giving.

Day 1, November 10th: 10am-5:30pm EDT

Day 2, November 11th: 8:30am-3pm EDT
 


    COST

    $175  IPA members (including lunch, manual, resource guide, and snacks)

    $250  non-members (including meals, manual, resource guide, and snacks)


    TARGET AUDIENCE

    • Program staff and volunteers (grant committees, trustees) of Indiana foundations responsible for making grant decisions and managing grants
    • Families and philanthropists with foundations and donor-advised funds

    Experience Level: The Purpose, Practice and People of Philanthropy curriculum is a comprehensive program specifically designed for grantmakers with 1-5 years of experience. Designed by professionals and delivered by practitioners, it is an excellent orientation for new foundation staff.  Because it is an interactive program, it is also an excellent update for foundation personnel who would like to increase their professional networks, redesign their grant processes or develop new grant strategies to increase the impact of their grants.
