For the third year in a row, the Council of Michigan Foundations is pleased to partner with the Dorothy A. Johnson Center for Philanthropy to offer the CMF-JCP Grantmaking Series, a practitioner-led learning series that teaches the techniques of effective grantmaking to both new and seasoned foundation professionals. The sessions are highly practical, academically rigorous, and designed to be as accessible and affordable as possible. Participants who complete the series will receive a Certificate of Completion.
This year, we will offer six live webinars (1.5 hours each). To qualify for the Certificate of Completion, participants of the 2016 Grantmaking Series must complete 12 hours of training, or 8 webinars; at least half of the hours completed (or 4 webinars) must be taken live from the current series offerings (the remainder may be completed through purchasing on-demand recorded webinars). Participants in this series must complete all training by December 31, 2016 to qualify for a 2016 Certificate of Completion.
