Getting to Impact Discussion Guide #1: Why Every Foundation Can and Should Have Impact

The Getting to Impact Discussion Guides are designed to help you facilitate discussions among your board members or local community of grantmakers with one purpose: to explore and strengthen a commitment to impact with your giving.

The first discussion guide helps you understand impact, the importance of pursuing it, and a basic framework for achieving it.

The guide addresses the following topics and includes corresponding discussion questions and resources:

  • How small foundations make a difference.
  • Why pursue impact?
  • Ways to achieve impact.

We strongly encourage you to use the discussion guide in a way that make sense for your foundation and hope it spurs meaningful conversation and learning.
