How can funders advance nonprofit equity, performance, impact, and sustainability? By investing in grantee staff and the systems that support them. No matter your size, issue focus or model of your foundation, this skill-building workshop will help you gauge why and how “talent-investing” can be crucial to the success of your grantmaking and the causes you support.

Attendees will walk away with research and practical guidance from Fund the People to help you use talent-investing to drive your mission forward. We will also benefit from the experience and lessons of the Evelyn and Walter Haas, Jr. Fund, a long-time supporter of grantee leadership.

  • Frameworks, research and ideas for investing in nonprofit talent
  • Practical tools for investing in grantee organizations’ talent
  • Action planning for baking talent-investing into your grantmaking strategy
