Finding Meaning in Your Giving – Discovering Your Family Legacy

Part of a special four-part conversation series led by highly respected philanthropic advisor Peter Lamb, focused on the unique perspectives of small family foundations, individual philanthropists, and donor advisors. Conversation one asks: What is your personal story that can help define your mission more clearly? Through a variety of exercises, we will explore the underlying story that defines you as a member of your family and gives meaning and context to the work that you want to support through your grantmaking.

A Path to Greater Impact: Moving from Ideas to Action

Grantmakers already play an integral role in shaping public life. We do this with our funding, capacity building initiatives, data collection/evaluation and mission investing. Public policy work and support offers another important tool to add to this repertoire. Join this webinar to hear more from MPC's Public Policy Task Team about their recommendations and steps for moving forward for philanthropy engagement in public policy in Maine.
