Philanthropy 101 is a five-part series that helps all staff new to philanthropy better understand the sector. Developed by the Dorothy A. Johnson Center for Philanthropy’s Grantmaking School team and Philanthropy New York and presented by Associated Grant Makers (AGM) in Boston beginning in Fall 2018, this interactive course will provide a historical overview of philanthropy, review a foundation’s leadership and governance, provide an overview of grantmaking, debate the current big issues in philanthropy, and explore the various roles within philanthropy.
Philanthropy 101 will take place the first Friday morning of each month starting in October 2018 and wrapping up in February 2019, and is relevant to staff in any position at a grantmaking organization. The series is a cohort-based program with the five modules building on each other, and participants are expected to commit to attending all five sessions.
To extend the impact of those who benefit, this series is in partnership with Grantmakers Council of Rhode Island (GCRI) and the Maine Philanthropy Center (MPC) and presented in Massachusetts.
Anyone who has joined the philanthropic sector within the last 1 to 2 years or is interested in a refresher; open to the entire range of disciplines within the field, e.g., Assistant to the President, Program Officer, Chief Financial Officer, Controller, Human Services Director, Trustee, Program Assistant, among others.
