New foundation leaders often search for the “right” way to operate a foundation. While there are certain rules of the road, the truth is that there are many ways to approach grantmaking. Our Philanthropic Advisory Services team recently hosted a roundtable discussion with two leaders from established, successful foundations who shared how they started in different places but landed on a similar course toward impactful giving. In this informative session, we explored how to determine a programmatic starting point, various approaches to address community needs, allowing grantmaking to evolve and more.
We’ve compiled these resources to help you explore this topic more fully on your own, including the roundtable replay, guidelines and expert tips.
