To register for the Philanthropy 101 Series you must register on the Philanthropy 101: Speaking the Same Language page. You will be automatically registered for the remaining modules once you register. Below are the links to the other modules:
- September 28 - Speaking the Same Language
- November 2 - Fundamentals of Grantmaking
- November 9 - Foundation Governance and Legal Issues
- December 7- The Great Debates in Philanthropy
So you are working for a foundation. People are drawn to the field of philanthropy to make a difference. While philanthropic organizations may have a broader commitment to strategy, many individuals may lack an explicit strategy for effectiveness, without an awareness of ambiguous situations, unusual dynamics and the challenges they may encounter that require a sense of personal strategy.
Upon completing this module, participants will be able to:
- Discuss the role(s) they play in their new organization
- Examine their role(s), professional relationships and power dynamics
- Describe the broader philanthropic infrastructure
- Explain peer networking as part of the work
- Phil Li, President & Chief Executive Officer, Robert Sterling Clark Foundation
- Kaberi Banerjee Murthy, Vice President of Programs, Brooklyn Community Foundation
Anyone who has joined the philanthropic sector within the last 12-18 months; open to the entire range of disciplines with the field, e.g., Assistant to the President, Program Officer, Chief Financial Officer, Controller, Human Services Director, Trustee, among others. This is a cohort-based program. The five modules will build on each other, and participants are expected to commit to attending all five.
