Partnering for Impact
A new report from the Association of Baltimore Area Grantmakers documents the experiences, successes, and lessons learned during the Learning and Action Agenda Project, an effort to provide local grantmakers with information and strategies around issues of importance to the Casey Foundation - particularly around the Foundation's Family Economic Success framework - and to motivate them to take action on those issues within their own communities and networks. It attempts to answer two questions: What should national funders and regional associations keep in mind when working together? How do different perspectives come into play, and how do they affect understanding, implementation, and outcomes of joint projects?
The Board of Directors of the North Carolina Network of Grantmakers has announced Ret Boney as the next Executive Director of the Network. Ret will begin May 13, 2013. Previous to joining NCNG, Boney served as Senior Vice President of Clarity Group, a consulting group for nonprofits, and as the Deputy Editor of the Philanthropy Journal. NCNG's current executive director Bobbi Hapgood will depart on May 17th.
