Foundation Leadership Series
By now, the term the “new normal” has become a familiar catchphrase in the nonprofit sector. What does this mean and how do the conditions of the new normal affect grantmaking institutions and practices?
Lucy Bernholz, president and founder of Blueprint Research & Design, will lead a workshop that provides foundation senior staff and board members a unique opportunity to approach 2011 with renewed energy and creativity.
Participants will explore potential future trends and strategize their grantmaking practices. The basis for the workshop is Bernholz’s newly released publication, Philanthropy and Social Investing: Blueprint 2011--the only independent industry forecast for philanthropy.
Bernholz will delve deeply into the issues raised in Philanthropy and Social Investing: Blueprint 2011 and facilitate an interactive session exploring what these trends mean in the context of foundations’ communities and grantmaking.
This workshop is limited to 15 participants and SCG encourages the participation of multiple senior staff from a single member organization. The cost is $250 for the first individual and $75 for each additional individual from an SCG member organization. Each participant will receive two copies of Philanthropy and Social Investing: Blueprint 2011.
