The fulfilling work of being a grantmaker doesn't come without its own price. The process of grantmaking—vetting multiple proposals at any given time, having to tell prospective grantees "no", and demonstrating the impact of one's grantmaking—can take an emotional toll. While grantmakers are passionate about their work, it's equally important that they take time to intentionally nurture and sustain that passion throughout their careers.
NCG and California Philanthropy are pleased to present Heart of Philanthropy (HOP), a unique leadership development retreat designed for seasoned grantmakers and the challenges they face to sustain vigor in their practice. HOP provides grantmakers with the space and quiet to rekindle their enthusiasm for their work. HOP is also a rare opportunity for grantmakers to slow down and reflect on their individual and work selves; renewing a sense of vocational vitality and benefiting from developing a trusted peer group that will continue to provide inspiration and support long after the retreat.
