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.
To qualify for the Certificate of Completion, participants of the 2017 Grantmaking Series must complete 12 hours of training, (hours can be from the current live program offerings or through purchasing on-demand recorded webinars). **Participants with contact hours from 2016, not amounting to the 12 hours required for training, may carry these into 2017 to successfully complete the series.
Participants in this series must complete all training by December 31, 2017 to qualify for a 2017 Certificate of Completion.
