With more than 1,700 foundations in Maryland and a growing landscape of corporate funders, donor advised funds, giving circles, and public charities, the first step to grant seeking is understanding the basic operations of organized giving. How do different types of grantmakers make decisions? What are the current local priorities in philanthropy? How do I, or can I, get to know grantmakers? Where can you get more information?
The Maryland Philanthropy Network invites the staff and board members of nonprofit 501(c)3 organizations and social enterprises to our recurring program on foundations and the broader landscape of philanthropy in Maryland. Government staff will also learn valuable information for helping their constituents. This learning opportunity is most appropriate to new grantseekers and to nonprofit organizations in Baltimore and central Maryland. The webinar uses questions, or polls, to actively engage participants in building a common knowledge of foundations and other grantmakers.
