State of the Philanthropic Union

It’s clear that many Foundations are looking for the best ways to make an impact in the down economy. As Foundation’s cope with the decisions they will have to make surrounding their grants appropriation for 2009, it’s important to have opportunities for organizations to come together and discuss these challenges and come up with potential solutions to some of the most glaring problems.

On Thursday, February 26th, from 8 AM to 1PM, The New York Regional Association of Grantmakers, along with The Education and Research of the Better Business Bureau of Metropolitan New York, Inc. will be hosting an event, “State of the Philanthropic Union: Meeting Effectiveness Challenges”. The agenda for the program includes an overview of the state of the philanthropic union, panels on advocacy and leadership, new challenges, and how to make tough choices around grant planning, budgeting and more. The keynote speaker for the event will be Lorie A. Slutsky, the President of The New York Community Trust.
