Refining Organizational Practices to Enhance Place-Based Initiatives





Effectively engaging in place based philanthropy requires the need to rethink various aspects of the organizational set-up such as: the role of the program officer and other key staff, the way you develop metrics and evaluation tools to measure success, and the ways in which you involve community in the work. Listen to colleagues share experiences of transitioning from short and long term strategies to being more initiative-based, and ways in which they were able to get buy in from board, staff and community members.
