Host Organization: New York University


This week-long funder education course has been the premier course for newer foundation program officers and grants managers from around the United States and the world since 2002. Built around the core competencies that the philanthropy field has identified, this intensive has proven particularly useful to those in their first few years in the field.

The course covers the history of the sector, the relationship to public policy, ethics, best practices, issues of power, established and cutting-edge grantmaking strategies, program evaluation, aligning investment and spending policies, exit strategies, and more. This highly rated course employs a variety of methods, including interactive case studies and personalized problem-solving.
