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.
