Join this interactive webinar to identify and focus on the high leverage grant making practices and behaviors that matter most to your grant seekers and to your foundation. We’ll explore the connections between foundation values and grant making practices and how to make sure your practices reflect those values. Participants will leave with a better understanding of streamlining opportunities and will know where to find assessment tools, guides, blog and other resources that are available to support your streamlined practices.
This workshop is designed for teams or individuals from grantmaking organizations, including executives, grants managers, and program staff.
