Member Voices: Donor Collaboratives: Maximizing Your Philanthropic Impact

My name is Rachel Ogorek and I am on the EPIP Steering Committee in Washington, DC. In my day job I am the Program Manager at the National Center for Family Philanthropy (NCFP). NCFP is the nation’s only nonprofit dedicated exclusively to families who give and those that work with them. I recently wrote this blog post about potential of donor collaboratives to maximize philanthropic impact. I believe collaboration is essential for social change now more than ever and I hope more funders will come together to protect marginalized communities in this way.

EPIP DC | A Message from the chapter Co-Chairs:

A message from Kelly Trop & Tyler Nickerson.

"We find ourselves in this political moment with more questions than answers. Our strategies need evaluation. Our policy goals need readjustment.

Local philanthropies’ working together, as a DMV Region, will be even more critical and necessary. As a local sector, we must continue to find ways to move from independence to inter-dependence."
