Increasingly, community foundations are being called to explain program strategies, increase the impact of grantees and engage more donors. Today’s donors are more demanding… they want information, involvement and measurable results.
This interactive series is designed to help your community foundation board members, CEOs/Executive Directors, senior staff, program officers and communications staff increase and highlight the impact of your community leadership and grantmaking, from assessing community needs and opportunities to creating and executing strategies and communicating the results of your efforts. It builds on the research of experts on community impact and has been validated by community foundation representatives.
This six-session series begins with one session designed for all audiences, and proceeds to add depth in five subsequent sessions. Participate on your own, or engage a team.
The sessions include workbook exercises and other resources for your use as you begin to build your capacity to “make a difference” in your local community.
As a result of participating in this series, you will be able to:
- Be more strategic... as you think about what’s happening in your community and figure out how to use your assets—financial and otherwise—to achieve the greatest possible impact.
- Implement better… finding ways to plan and execute your grantmaking and community catalyst work more effectively.
- And tell a better story… about the work you do and about the value you bring to donors and to your community.
