Webinar recap – Talent-Focused Grantmaking: Fund the People for Impact and Sustainability

September 10, 2014
EPIP Webinar | Talent-Focused Grantmaking: Fund the People for Impact and Sustainability

Funding nonprofit talent is a vital but often overlooked piece of the grantmaking puzzle. This webinar offered an in-depth examination of talent-focused grantmaking and nonprofit leadership development. It was led by the President and CEO of the Talent Philanthropy Project (and EPIP’s Founder and former Executive Director), Rusty Stahl as well as Stephanie Andrews ( Leadership Development Director at the Bush Foundation) and Tom Fuechtmann (Program Officer at the Community Memorial Foundation) – two funders with extensive experience in this work. Rusty, Stephanie and Tom discussed how factors are necessitating this shift; how these practices are being implemented on the ground; and how to explore talent-focused grantmaking in one’s own work.

    Thank you so much for tackling this incredibly important topic! At NTEN, our research has shown year over year that many nonprofit staff report having the tools they need – they don’t have the knowledge or skills to use the tools to better meet their mission. Whether it’s a capacity building grant or a project or program grant, we encourage all organizations to make these they are clear about two things: the technologies that will allow them to do their work and the people that have to be included. Push back from funders that they don’t fund those two things really seems to say that they aren’t invested in the full potential for impact and we need to ensure everything we do is set up to make a real difference in our communities.
