What We Do…

Convene

Bringing people together is what we do best. Our programs and informal gatherings keep you current on the latest issues while connecting you with colleagues. Check out our Upcoming Programs schedule for the latest events!

Inform

We connect members to online and printed resources. We provide a searchable member directory, a collection of resources on our website and the bi-annual Giving Report.  We are a proud member of the national Forum of Regional Association of Grantmakers, which enables us to stay abreast of emerging ideas impacting the philanthropic sector in all parts of the United States (See PDF). Our staff is also available to answer your questions and provide the tools you need for success.

Educate

We offer high-quality educational programs to our members. We operate seven affinity groups to connect you with an area of interest and funders doing similar work. Our peer gatherings offer informal opportunities to meet and learn from your colleagues.

Communicate

We keep our members plugged in through our many publications: weekly program announcements, monthly resources and newsletters, plus direct member-to-member conversation through our listserv. We are also on Facebook and Twitter to talk with community influencers, national thought leaders and people like you!
