Community Foundation staff, board members, and grants committee members, please join us as a panel of three program officers, Marilyn Hull, Douglas County Community Foundation, Marsha Pope, Topeka Community Foundation, and Elaine Dhuyvetter, Greater Manhattan Community Foundation, talk about the grant making and follow-up process their foundations go through from start to finish. Learn from peers new ways to:
• Attract grant applications that fit your foundation’s mission
• Perform an effective and efficient grant review process
• Avoid Conflict of Interest issues within the grants committee
• Get the word out to your community about the grant awards given
• Ask for grantee accountability
• Report grant results to the community where they are making a difference
There will also be plenty of time for questions and group discussion to allow peer learning.
