Philanthropy’s Role in Creating Systems to Effect Community Solutions
1:00 PM- 2:30 PM on Tuesday, September 24th, 2013
Even the biggest funders in the world can’t do it alone. By working at a systems level through outcome-based granting, collaboration with other sectors, advocacy and bridge-building, funders can initiate significant change in communities. The sector needs to shift from focusing on programs and organizations, to focusing on communities and systems. This presentation will provide an overview of three funders who have been catalysts in their communities around systems change. The presenters will facilitate a discussion about barriers and opportunities for creating effective systems that support the most vulnerable populations.
