How Collaboration Between the Program and Investment Sides of Foundations Can Drive Overall Mission
The positive trend in aligning the program and investment sides of foundations could be accelerated by empowering both sides to collaborate better.
In this webinar we will explore the practices around involving program officers in helping inform a foundation’s investment portfolio – from sharing knowledge gathered from grantees, to lifting up concerns that may not always reach the investment officers.
Laura Campos, Director, Corporate and Political Accountability at the Nathan Cummings Foundation, and Elizabeth McGeveran, Director of Investments at the McKnight Foundation, are leaders in the effort to integrate the two sides. They will be in conversation with Meredith Benton of Whistle Stop Capital, longstanding collaborator of Transform Finance, to explore emerging best practices.
We invite you to join us on Thursday, April 25, 2019 at 10:00 AM Pacific, 1:00 PM Eastern for this 90-minute webinar via Webex.
