Staying Connected Webinar
Tuesday, February 13, 2018 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM (Eastern Time)

Jennifer Glickman, Manager, Research, Center for Effective Philanthropy
Melinda Tuan, Managing Director, Fund for Shared Insight
Tony Richardson, Program Officer, Nord Family Foundation
Victor Leandry, Director, El Centro 
Edna Ortiz,  Lorain, Ohio resident and beneficiary of the programs of El Centro

Recent Center for Effective Philanthropy (CEP) research finds that foundation leaders believe learning from the experiences of their beneficiaries — those they are ultimately trying to help — holds a great deal of promise for increasing foundation impact in the coming decades. But our research also shows that both funders and grantees alike don’t always see this learning happening.

How can foundations get better at this? The insights of exemplars can help.

Join CEP and Fund for Shared Insight for an in-depth webinar discussing the work of the Nord Family Foundation in Amherst, OH, one of the funders featured in the new CEP publication, Staying Connected: How Five Foundations Understand Those They Seek to Help. Nord, which seeks to help populations such as economically disadvantaged youth and individuals at risk of homelessness, ranked among the top 15 percent of foundations that commissioned a Grantee Perception Report (GPR) between 2016 and 2017 when it comes to grantee ratings on questions related to understanding intended beneficiaries’ needs.

CEP’s Jennifer Glickman will provide background on CEP’s work on this topic, before turning it over to Shared Insight’s Melinda Tuan to moderate a discussion between Nord’s Program Officer, Tony RichardsonVictor Leandry of El Centro (one of Nord’s grantees), and Edna Ortiz, a beneficiary of El Centro’s programs. Attendees can expect to come away with a clearer picture of what it takes for a funder to effectively build understanding of their beneficiaries, as well as practices they can apply to their work at their own organizations.
