About this Session
Grantmakers often go “beyond dollars” and leverage all of their assets to address challenges and opportunities in their communities. In this session, we will explore the numerous non-dollar strategies that funders use to meet their philanthropic goals, including serving as thought partners, issue advocates, and conveners as well as providing valuable manpower and professional expertise through volunteerism and pro bono services. Learn how to leverage these resources and find opportunities for mutual support in order to achieve greater impact together.
