Sharing What Matters: A Center for Effective Philanthropy Webinar on Foundation Transparency

March 23, 2016,
1:00pm to 2:00pm
EDT
Webinar
Center for Effective Philanthropy

Center for Effective Philanthropy (CEP) analyzed survey data from 145 foundation CEOs and more than 15,000 grantees and systematically reviewed more than 70 foundation websites. The research reveals that funders see grantees as the primary audiences for their transparency efforts, and both foundations and grantees believe transparency about the substance of foundation work, rather than about financial disclosures or governance, matters most to effectiveness. Philanthropy Northwest is pleased to invite you to CEP's presentation of these findings.

What makes it good or bad or a positive or negative experience is how it's managed. In this webinar, we’ll explore typical situations where families might find themselves falling into the avoidance trap, along with useful strategies for ‘avoiding avoidance’ and other related tips and tools for managing family conflict.
