Increasingly, the U.S. economy and the health of our global communities rely on a robust and highly-functioning nonprofit sector. The public sector, the private sector, and the nonprofit sector all recognize the growing need to collaborate in order to tackle this challenging work. At the Center for Public & Nonprofit Leadership, we see our role as preparing leaders who can work for the public good across all sectors.
Through a focus on experiential learning, we provide opportunities for Georgetown graduate students to engage in rigorous study, undertake challenging research, and practice the skills that are required of cross-sector leaders. The Center offers leadership development and executive education programs, including our signature Nonprofit Management Executive Certificate, for individuals working in or with nonprofit and philanthropic organizations. Finally, the Center focuses attention on education and research at the intersection of philanthropy and public policy—through its endowed Waldemar A. Nielsen Chair in Philanthropy—strengthening the efforts of using philanthropy to address intractable social problems.
From trust-based and participatory grant-making, to the creation of pooled and collaborative funds, private foundations are changing the way they distribute resources to shift power. Join Coco Jervis, John Hecklinger, and Cynthia Eyakuze in this virtual roundtable to talk about how donors and grantees engage in participatory grantmaking, what they have learned, and discuss challenges and unresolved issues.
