    Collaborative Philanthropy Series Part III

    EPIP Bay Area and Northern California Grantmakers invite you to an interactive presentation with Jennifer Splansky Juster, Director at FSG, on the role that funders play in driving collective impact.

    We know that to achieve lasting change we must be able to work across sectors—nonprofit, public, and private industry alike. But what does that actually look like? How can funders play a role in spurring collective impact in a thoughtful way that furthers efforts rather than hinders them?

    Join fellow nonprofit and philanthropy practitioners on Wednesday, May 11th for a lively discussion with Jennifer Splansky Juster, a Director at FSG, to learn about collective impact and the important role that funders can play in aligning efforts, leveraging funding, and ultimately amplifying impact for lasting social change.

    Light refreshments will be served. We hope to see you there.

Jennifer is also a member of FSG’s Education & Youth and U.S. Health impact areas. Recent clients include the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Conrad N. Hilton Foundation, Marin Community Foundation, Girard College, and Silicon Valley ALLIES.
