And recognize the power of your non-grant assets such as knowledge, connections, access, voice, and reputational capital.

Learning Objectives

  • Articulate a clear role for the board chair to play to help your foundation stay focused.
  • Explain how catalytic philanthropy nurtures relationships and participation, and can advance equity.
