Working Well With Grantees
February 28th from 2-3 pm EST
This webinar hosted by the Southeastern Council of Foundations (SECF) and the Center for Effective Philanthropy (CEP) will explore how to build strong and effective relationships with your grantees. In this webinar, CEP Vice President, Assessment and Advisory Services, Kevin Bolduc will share findings from CEP’s research and dive into what analysis of thousands of grantee perceptions shows to define a strong relationship between funders and grantees. Bolduc will discuss which specific practices set the stage for success, including transparency with grantees. He will then briefly interview The Healing Trust President and CEO Kristen Keely-Dinger and Program and Communications Officer Jennifer Oldham. The Healing Trust is an exemplar among funders in CEP’s dataset for the strength of its relationships with grantees, and the interview will discuss insights about how The Trust approaches building relationships with its grantees. Additionally, there will be ample time for questions for both CEP and The Healing Trust. Attendees of this webinar will come away with a clearer picture of what grantees see as the basis for strong funder-grantee relationships, as well as data-based best practices to apply to their work at their own foundation.
