Welcome our New Members:

New Program Series

Increasing knowledge and impact

In alignment with our new strategic plan framework, Philanthropy Network Greater Philadelphia has developed a stronger mix of inter-connected skill- and issue-based and "big idea" programs that are uniquely designed to address members' priority interests.

We are excited to announce the launch of three new program series starting in March of 2013:

Smart Grantmaking Practices

Smart Grantmaking Practices is a reconceived and updated version of our Fundamentals of Smart Grantmaking (FSG) series.  This skill-based educational series is popular with foundation veterans as well as trustees and staff who are newer to philanthropy. The series consists of two half-day "fundamentals” workshops (held in both city and suburban locations) plus several "elective” courses addressing topics with great relevance and appeal for today's grantmakers.

Giving With Impact

This series was designed to address members' top reported priority of practicing philanthropy that has a strong, positive social impact. The series features prominent thought leaders and practitioners exploring key tools and techniques for achieving philanthropic impact.

Inside Stories

This program series features Philanthropy Network member organizations sharing the inside scoop behind new initiatives and/or directions they are taking in their grantmaking. Story-tellers discuss how they decided to embark on changes in their philanthropy, what processes were involved, challenges they have overcome, and major lessons they learned along the way.

Tools of the Trade

This informal brown-bag lunch series will educate and connect our members with a range of data, tools, and other resources to support and improve their grantmaking. Initial sessions explored community information available through the Census Bureau, data visualization and getting the most from Form 990 financial data.


Watch our Events & Programs Calendar for upcoming session announcements.

For further information, contact Ashley Feuer-Edwards, Director of Member Services, at 215-790-9700 x 3 or ashley@philanthropynetwork.org.
