Giving Wisely

Join us for Giving Wisely, a ten-week program designed to provide fundholders with the tools they need to be more engaged philanthropists. Through a mix of facilitated discussion, group and personal activities, and peer-to-peer learning, GiveWisely will offer participants the opportunity to look deeper into what motivates them to give, to explore the challenges and benefits of involving multiple generations in giving, and to understand the shifting best practices in grantmaking that are addressing the power imbalances inherent in the world of philanthropy.

The inaugural program will run from November 4, 2021 – January 6, 2022, and will include five two-hour sessions. You can access the online application here.
