The learning curve for new grantmakers is a considerable obstacle on the path to effective grantmaking. Even grantmakers with a few years experience may still be unclear on the legal aspects of grantmaking or how to spot the red flags in grantee financial statements. If you're new to philanthropy, or interested in sharpening your abilities, NCG's New Grantmakers Institute: Essential Skills & Strategies helps build your framework for best practices for ethical and effective grantmaking.
In this two-day highly interactive workshop participants have the opportunity to engage with their peers around opportunities and challenges of grantmaking work: identifying key factors in making funding decisions, and understanding expectations and core tensions of their role as foundation staff. In addition to developing a network of peers, participants will have a rare opportunity to hear directly from philanthropic leaders and become familiar with resources available to support their continued professional development. The curriculum is a innovative, national standard created through a partnership between the Council of Foundations and the Forum of Regional Associations of Grantmakers. Sessions are designed to be interactive and discussion-oriented to provide attendees with expertise needed to thrive in philanthropy. Participants will receive a comprehensive set of curriculum materials and additional learning resources at the completion of the Institute.
