Only 1% or less of foundation grant dollars aim to build up nonprofit professionals, or empower nonprofits to develop their staff. And that has been the case for at least 20 years now.
Investing in nonprofit people should seem like common sense: funders are only as effective as their grantees, and grantees are only as effective as their people. Yet, there are many reasons greater investment in nonprofit talent doesn’t happen.
Join in a dynamic conversation about how investing in your grantees' staff support systems can help to ensure a diverse, high-performing, impactful and enduring nonprofit workforce, and how this in turn can be mutually-beneficial to funders and grantees as they seek to accomplish mutual goals.
Hear from Talent Philanthropy / #FundThePeople (@FundThePeople), a new national initiative helping funders and fundraisers to maximize investments in the diversity, performance, impact and sustainability of the nonprofit workforce.
We’ll explore fresh conceptual frameworks, current research, real world examples, and practical ideas for investing in nonprofit talent. The session will feature leading voices from foundation and nonprofit communities in New York City and elsewhere in the US.
This discussion complements national conversations in philanthropy about organizational performance; diversity, equity and inclusion; social impact; nonprofit leadership; and the real cost of running nonprofits.
