Webinar: Effectively Partnering with Philanthropy Consultants: How Lean Funders Can Enhance Impact and Extend Their Team

Please join Exponent Philanthropy and the National Network of Consultants to Grantmakers (NNCG) for this complimentary webinar.

Lean funders learn to hit above their weight class in many ways, including partnering at the “right time” with the “right philanthropic consultant.” In this webinar, hear the story of growth and evolution of The Carl and Roberta Deutsch Foundation’s HALO Award program and how this was made possible through an intentional partnership between the foundation and its philanthropic consultant, Blue Garnet. Learn how the partnership began in 2011, evolved over the past 8 years, and how it works today.

During this webinar, Jacqueline Chun, the chief programs & operations officer at The Carl and Roberta Deutsch Foundation, and Way-Ting Chen, co-founder of Blue Garnet, share their reflections on the experience working together, and what helped make this partnership so successful — ingredients that can be generalized to help other lean funders enhance their impact and extend their team.
