Join Maryland Philanthropy Network for our next State of the Sector Workgroup meeting where we will discuss tools to better understand the organizational health needs of nonprofits.
Maryland Philanthropy Network is pleased to be a partner with the Trust-Based Philanthropy Project for this multi-part series that will explore the relationship between the two approaches, to understand why a racial equity lens is needed (the issue), what a racial equity lens is in a trust-based approach (the answer), and how to operationalize it (the implementation). This series will include comprehensive data-informed content, rich discussion and insights from sector thought leaders, as well as an opportunity to connect with a cohort of peers actively working to understand and operationalize these concepts within their grantmaking organizations.
You asked, we’re listening. Our 2022 MPN Member Survey revealed interest in programs on public/private partnerships. Join us later this month for a special session to learn about best practices in public/private partnerships.
Maryland Philanthropy Network is committed to helping our members learn to practice philanthropy in service of equity and justice. Community-Centric Fundraising (CCF) is a movement aspiring to transform fundraising and philanthropy so that they are co-grounded in racial and economic justice. CCF invites fundraisers and funders to examine the problematic philosophies and practices we've been upholding.
Maryland Philanthropy Network invites all members to learn how grantmakers can best use the Form 990 to learn about potential grantees. We will discuss what the 990 tells you and, more importantly, what it does not tell you.
Join Maryland Philanthropy Network and the Trust-Based Philanthropy Project for the last webinar in this 6-part series focused on addressing common questions, clarifying misconceptions, and exploring ways to overcome obstacles in implementing trust-based philanthropy. This session will explore the connection and distinction between the two, and why both should be prioritized for trust-based funders. Participants will gain a deeper knowledge on why and how to explicitly prioritize racial equity in your trust-based practices and values.
Join your peers in the region for a jointly sponsored program between philanthropy-serving organizations about the role private and public foundations can play in advocacy as individual foundations or with your grantees.
This program has been postponed and will be rescheduled. We apologize for any inconvenience.
Held in partnership with the Trust-Based Philanthropy Project, this is the fifth session of a 6-part webinar series on Demystifying Trust-Based Philanthropy. During this session, we will unpack these important nuances and will highlight examples of how grantmakers are relying on rigor and continuous learning to understand impact. Participants can expect to gain a clear understanding of trust-based philanthropy’s three-pronged approach to learning and evaluation, as well as concrete tools they can use to implement in their own work. Each session will provide dedicated space for small-group peer dialogue with other MPN members about ways to implement these practices into your grantmaking.
