Strategic Co-Funding: A Grantmaker Convening
Washington, D.C. | Oct. 29, 2012
The problems we seek to address are too large and complex for any one grantmaker to tackle alone, and the nonprofits we rely on to address these deep-rooted challenges lack the sizable, predictable and flexible funding they need. Strategic co-funding is a key way grantmakers of all types can expand the impact of their grants, leverage knowledge and resources (both philanthropic and public funds), and reduce administrative burdens on themselves and grantees.
This day-long convening, designed for grantmakers currently involved in or interested in being part of strategic co-funding partnerships, will offer participants opportunities to deepen their knowledge and advance their practice around key areas such as:
- building trust;
- developing joint strategies, goals and common processes (e.g., due diligence, reporting);
- coordinating with public systems, policy and funders; and
- collectively raising, administering and evaluating pooled grant dollars.
Mark your calendars, priority registration for GEO members opens July 25. Regular registration opens to all other eligible participants on August 9. As space at this event is limited to 150 participants, we expect to sell out quickly and recommend that you register early.
