Given the challenging economic times, it’s only natural for donors to want their scarce resources to be well spent. In reality, the pipeline that brings resources from donor to grantee is often leaky, limiting the potential for results. There is a great opportunity to enhance donor and grantee collaboration, which could increase the impact of each dollar granted. But how to get started? In this discussion, a leader of Bridgespan’s philanthropy practice will discuss this issue with donors – and share ideas and thoughts on how to enhance the important donor-grantee relationship by ensuring grantees have the resources they need to fulfill grant objectives, pursuing true partnership with grantees, and working to make an impact together.
Featured presenters include:
- Susan Ditkoff, Partner, The Bridgespan Group;
- Alisa Robbins Doctoroff, Chair of the Board, UJA-Federation of New York; and
- Annie Hernandez, Program Officer, Organization & Leadership Development, Lumpkin Family Foundation
