Presented by Philanthropy Massachusetts
This past year brought previously unimaginable crises and barriers for the nonprofit and funding communities. In response, nonprofits and funders innovated, worked together, and identified ways to meet these challenges head on.
In their work with nonprofits and grantmakers over the past year, Philanthropy Massachusetts has observed common themes, including the importance of trust, adaptability, and collaboration, in providing critical relief and addressing the racial, health and economic disparities that were laid bare. These practices are silver linings, reflecting our shared humanity and the ingenuity of the third sector.
Working off the following definitions, they invite you to join them and your fellow nonprofits and funders to share what has worked over these past many months and what you would like to carry forth in your work:
Trust or the belief in your partners’ expertise, reliability, and truth.
Adaptability or the capacity to be flexible or able to adjust to new conditions.
Collaboration or two or more entities working together toward shared goals.
You will hear from representatives from the nonprofit and funder communities as they share their own experiences over the past year, and then open up the discussion so we can learn from each other.
