Join the Program Staff Learning Network for our September session on Site Visits to Deepen Knowledge & Relationships.

As a funder, does your organization conduct site visits? How do they inform your decision making? In what ways do you engage with the nonprofit before, during, and after the visit? Are there ways to make it a more positive experience for all?

Not your typical list of best practices, this session aims to go deeper into the why and how of creating meaningful opportunities to understand and engage with current/potential grantee partners through site visits.

Hear from a panel of local nonprofit leaders for their insights and advice on how to effectively use site visits to build deeper, more collaborative relationships with organizations. You will then have an opportunity to reflect on these questions with a small group of your peers.

If you have specific questions for the panelists, please feel free to send them in advance to Jessica Berns.

Site Visits to Deepen Knowledge & Relationships connects to the Network’s established learning theme for the year: Building and Sustaining Transparent and Respectful Relationships with Grantees.

This program is planned by Amy Hampe (Richard and Susan Smith Family Foundation), Carol Lavoie-Schuster (Essex County Community Foundation) and Melanie Torres (The Klarman Family Foundation).
