Please join us on Tuesday, September 25, to hear from pioneering collective impact funders about various roles that funders can play to fuel successful collective impact efforts
Investing in Change: Funding Collective Impact Efforts
September 25, 2012, Noon – 1:00pm ET
Many social impact funders are finding that investing in collective impact efforts is among the most powerful, leveraged investments they can make to achieve large scale, lasting social change. This webinar will address the barriers funders face in participating in collective impact efforts and tips for overcoming them, in addition to the wide range of roles funders can play. Panelists will share lessons learned, including how the role of a collective impact funder differs dramatically from that of a more traditional grantmaker. This webinar will also include a forum to discuss ways that funders and practitioners of collective impact can work together more effectively.
FSG’s Fay Hanleybrown and Grantmakers for Effective Organizations’ (GEO) Kathleen Enright will lead the webinar. Joining them will be:
- Emily Tow Jackson, Executive Director, The Tow Foundation, funder of a New York State juvenile justice collective impact reform effort, and
- Ken Thompson, Program Officer, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, funder of The Road Map Project.
We hope you will join us on Tuesday! Register for the webinar here ($49).
