Efforts to incorporate community stakeholders in a grantmakers’ work are rare. However, nonprofit leaders and board chairs can be strong assets in the design and implementation of grantmaker programs and initiatives, making our work more effective and impactful. Their participation can provide valuable professional development for individuals and positively impact their organizations and communities.
In this session, you will learn about a model that enables nonprofit directors and board chairs to play a meaningful role in program design, mentoring nonprofit leaders, advising grantmakers and facilitating training sessions. Participants will discuss engagement methods, online tools and how to trouble-shoot the common concerns around involving nonprofit leaders in the development of grantmaker programs.
