A comprehensive guide to philanthropic effectiveness.
Giving and managing grants can be a learn-as-you-go experience. Building upon IPA’s Grantmaking 101 workshop, Grantmaking 201 offers foundation staff and board members an advanced guide to effective grant management processes. We will dig deep into emerging trends, as we uncover the purpose, practice, and people shaping philanthropy.
Join Grantmaking 201 for strategies to help refine the purpose of your giving, enhance the practice of your giving, and maximize the impact of your giving.
