In these challenging times, the performance and impact of foundations remains dependent on the dedicated nonprofit professionals and activists who deliver social service and fight for social justice every day. People on the frontlines deserve and need support to not just survive but to thrive, get results, and endure for the long haul. And yet funders undermine their own missions by not investing in their grantees’ people. The Fund the People 2017 Retreat brings together a community of funders who are actively learning how to maximize investments in their grantees’ workforce.
The Retreat is a best-in-class professional development experience that will engage foundation executives and trustees, alongside key nonprofit colleagues, to advance talent-investing in the field. This is a unique opportunity to advance your foundation’s goals by applying the ideas and practices of talent-investing. You will benefit from the knowledge and experience of foundation peers, nonprofit colleagues, Fund the People, and other organizations. And you will leave with your own action plan!
Mid-way through this year of political and social upheaval, the Fund the People Retreat offers breathing room to reflect, recharge, and refocus on the human dimension of our work. We will convene at Cavallo Point, a lodge and spa with views of the Golden Gate Bridge just outside San Francisco.
Registration is limited to funders who are deeply-experienced in talent-investing, and those who are seriously exploring adapting these practices at their foundations.
