Beyond Grantmaking: Telling Your Impact Story
Description
Foundations face an array of challenges as they attempt to show their impact and build support. The public and the media are questioning the value of endowed philanthropy – and distrust of established institutions is growing.

As a result, foundations are being challenged to show their impact in order to maintain their relevance and build the support necessary to drive sustained change.

This session will outline the real challenges foundations are facing in the court of public opinion, offer practical strategies for facing these challenges, and provide real-life examples of how foundations can show their impact and sway opinion.
