Session 5: The Scorched Dialogue Between Funders and Grantees
This session will begin with a discussion of the barriers that funders face in determining effectiveness. Through a couple of rounds of small group dialogue we will discuss ways to overcome these barriers. Discussion questions include: When is outcomes measurement effective, and what does it look like? What is a learning culture? How can a learning culture, or permission to fail influence philanthropic endeavors? The session will conclude by identifying the key processes necessary so that grantees have the information they need to manage toward outcomes, and funders have the information necessary to determine effectiveness. Kate Robinson, producer of the film "Saving Philanthropy will lead this session. Kate is the Founder and Director of FSP Creative Advocacy. A skilled facilitator, strategist, and advocate, Kate has worked in the non-profit sector for over a decade specializing in coalition building for public policy development and implementation.
Session 6: Funders and Social Media: Now What?
Twitter and Facebook and Blogs, oh my! By now it has become clear that social media is more than just a passing fad. On the contrary, it has become an essential communication tool for businesses and nonprofit organizations alike. We no longer need to debate social media’s importance and significance; we now need to figure out what to do with it. More foundations and funding organizations are learning how to effectively use and master these new tools. In this workshop, we’ll examine specific methods where grantmakers and non-profits have found value in social media, and examine the key tools necessary to make social media work for your organization. Presented by Matt Brown, MKE 123 Coordinator - Nonprofit Center of Milwaukee.
