General information about the panels: The Grantsmanship Center began offering these national, Meet the Grantmakers-Online! events July 2020 for free, as a public service. Their purpose is to show the humanity in the process—the people behind the power of grantmaking. These are warm and interesting conversations among grantmakers from across the U.S. to help grantseekers understand that most grantmakers are people who are also passionate about making a better world. Seeing and hearing these leaders in conversation helps to make the grant process more inviting, accessible, and understandable.
The Grantsmanship Center invite panelists who demonstrate the varied and rich landscape of philanthropy. The conversation is guided by Angela Richardson, senior trainer, a masterful moderator who puts all at ease. Along with Angela, each panel is comprised of three grantmakers who represent a range of viewpoints with variety in their type of foundation/agency, geographic location, size, funding focus. The panelists are also personally diverse regarding gender, ethnicity, age, etc.
