Anchored in Place: Considerations for Place-Based Funding Web Series

Join us for a three part webinar series in partnership with The Aspen Institute to discuss approaches, tools and strategies for consideration when implementing a place-based initiative and how to garner the necessary support from your Board. Building upon the conversation that began during our webinar on Approaches to Place-Based Philanthropy, this webinar series will cover:

  • Lessons learned from The Aspen Institute’s Towards a Better Place Conference
  • What adopting a place-based grantmaking strategy may mean for your organization – from the changing role of the program officer to the role of the community voice in theories of change.
  • What it means to re-evaluate your definition of success when addressing larger systemic issues.
  • The importance of revising evaluation metrics to have a long term vs short term focus on goals and objectives.
  • How funders can partner with other public funders, private funders, local government, and intermediaries, and funder consortiums when funding in place. 

This series is free to members. We invite you to register today!
