Field Notes in Philanthropy: Let’s Not Get Coffee: A Live Podcast Recording from EPIP 2018

Field Notes in Philanthropy podcast logo

Did you know that even a simple “let’s get coffee” request from a potential funder can cause nonprofit staff serious stress? During this live episode – recorded at the 2018 Emerging Practitioners in Philanthropy annual conference – our hosts and their special guests dive into a candid conversation about how unbalanced power dynamics between funders and grantees can manifest themselves even in the simplest of meetings. In front of a live audience, we explore how grantmakers and grantees can better work together - without adding to work.

Special Guests: Janean Couch of the Grand Rapids Community Foundation, and Bridget Clark Whitney of Kids’ Food Basket.
