All IPA affinity group members are invited to join a special small group discussion and Q&A with Ford Foundation's Kathy Reich and Chris Cardona, taking place the morning of the Learning from Ford Foundation's BUILD Initiative public lecture held in Indianapolis. Separate registration is required for this exclusive event (see below listing for more event dates).

Reich and Cardona will discuss their current research and the BUILD Initiative's progress and learning to date. Reich currently chairs the board of Grantmakers for Effective Organizations and co-chairs the Fund for Shared Insight, enabling her to place Ford’s experience in context for grantmakers and implementing organizations nationwide.

The five-year, $1 billion BUILD Initiative is testing an approach to grantmaking that improves the management, resilience, and impact of vital civil society organizations around the world. The Ford Foundation is joining a growing list of funders eschewing an annual grantmaking cycle, taking a multi-year, strategic approach to help strengthen organizations to make a larger and more long-lasting contribution to the challenges they address.

Visitor parking is available at the Sports Complex Garage located at 875 W. New York Street. Click here for garage parking rates.

Please note lunch will not be provided.

  • Chris Cardona, Program Officer for Philanthropy, Ford Foundation
