Event description

Description

Last year, Vu Lee, author of the popular blog, Nonprofit with Balls (NWB), proposed a day where nonprofits and funders, including foundation trustees, can get a beer or some ice cream together and see each other as human beings, and help to decrease the power dynamics so present in our sector. Several of us took this suggestion seriously, including many really cool foundations.

This year we are continuing this now-annual tradition! We are calling it the Get a Beer* and Undo Nonprofit Power Dynamics (GBUNPD) Day, which is the best name ever, you will agree. (*BEER stands for “Beverage to Enhance Equity in Relationships,” and does not have to be alcoholic).

NWB, along with Grantmakers for Effective Organizations (GEO), Center for Effective Philanthropy (CEP), Forum of Regional Associations of Grantmakers, and Association of Baltimore Area Grantmakers are calling for a one-day where foundations and nonprofits can just get a beer together, or coffee or ice cream, without an agenda, and just talk about whatever. This year it is going to be May 25th!

GEO will be hosting a happy hour at The Front Page in DC. We'll provide some appetizers and drinks, all you need to bring is one or two leaders from the nonprofit organizations you fund to just hang out. This is an opportunity for trustees, program officers and nonprofits to have frank conversations with each other, not an opportunity to pitch a program, ask how you demonstrate impact or any of that stuff we normally talk about in fundraising meetings.

When registering, please complete separate registrations for GEO members and guests. Please reach out to Kyle Rinne (rinne@geofunders.org) with any questions.

For GEO members closer to Baltimore, ABAG is hosting a happy hour in downtown Baltimore. Please click here for more information.

This happy hour is for GEO members and their invited guests only.
