Donors Forum of Wisconsin (DFW) is partnering with BizTimes Media to introduce a new column to the Nonprofit Weekly. The new column, "Connecting to Philanthropy," will be contributed monthly by Jill Van Calster, president and CEO of DFW.
Through the "Connecting to Philanthropy" column, Jill will acquaint BizTimes readers with key findings from DFW's research as well as address trends that touch both the grantmaking and nonprofit sides of philanthropy.
"More transparency is needed to increase effectiveness for both our grantmaking members and the nonprofit organizations providing direct service," Van Calster said. "DFW is in a unique position to be the connector of these two diverse and dynamic partners in our community by providing valuable information in the pursuit of advancing philanthropy."
The "Connecting to Philanthropy" column is slated to run the first Friday of each month with advice for nonprofits on strategies to clearly communicate their "financial picture" to board members, donors, and funders.
