For our first luncheon of 2018, we will open up the floor so you all can share and learn from each other about your philanthropic priorities for the year. We especially want to hear:
• What are your top giving priorities for 2018?
• Are you considering new strategies to deepen your impact on your favorite causes?
• What are some success stories or lessons learned that you’ve seen from your grantmaking this past year?
• Given that 2018 will bring significant changes to County leadership, what are some ways you hope philanthropy can partner differently with government, business, and nonprofits to make bigger, more lasting change around our most pressing issues?
To jumpstart our conversation, we’ll call on Peter Tatian, Senior Fellow at the Urban Institute, to provide a deep dive on the findings from VoicesDMV, a community listening initiative that gathered insights from over 3,400 of our neighbors about their quality of life and top priorities they want to see addressed.
Space is limited. To reserve your spot for the Funders’ Roundtable, please contact Kevin Donnelly at firstname.lastname@example.org or 301-495-3036 x 162.
About the Funders' Roundtable of Montgomery County
These quarterly free lunch events provide representatives of local companies and foundations with an opportunity to get acquainted, learn more about Montgomery County funding priorities, and share best practices. The events are open to grantmakers only, and each time we have anywhere from 15 to 30 attendees. There is a different topic for each luncheon – education, health care, etc. – selected in advance by the group.
Lunch is provided courtesy of our 2018 sponsors: The Community Foundation, Jim and Carol Trawick Foundation, and The Washington Regional Association of Grantmakers.
If your fund, foundation or company makes grants in Montgomery County, you’ll want to join our informal lunch group!
