Event Details

Thursday, Dec. 14

Registration is required. This program is only open to AGF members.

To make significant impact on the communities they serve, foundations and corporate giving programs are feeling a need to be more strategic. But what does “strategic grantmaking” really mean, and is it always the best course of action? Kris Putnam-Walkerly, global philanthropy advisor and president of Putnam Consulting Group, will join us at the Arizona Grantmakers Forum 2017 Annual Meeting to define responsive and strategic grantmaking, the pros and cons of each and identify when each is most appropriate. Foundation leaders, board members and staff will learn:

  • four ways foundations can combine strategic and responsive approaches
  • five mistakes to avoid
  • next steps you can take right now

We hope you will join us for this informative and engaging session, as well as participate in our annual business meeting where we will present the findings of our Member Value Project, reflect on all we have achieved together this year, announce our 2018 board of directors and preview coming attractions for AGF members in the year ahead.
