REGISTRATION: This program is open to foundation donors, trustees, and staff; individual donors; donor advised fund holders; and members of giving circles. There is no fee for this program but pre-registration is required at due to limited capacity.

Can we be doing more with the resources we have?

Join Northern Virginia funders for a conversation using Exponent Philanthropy’s discussion guide, Making Evaluation Manageable and Meaningful, facilitated by Celeste Land of the Land Family Foundation. Together, we will discuss one foundation’s process of engaging in evaluation, a journey that starts with having a clear plan. This peer-to-peer conversation also represents an opportunity to connect to a network of local funders and explore topics of interest in a small group.

Light refreshments will be served.

Thank you to the Washington Forrest Foundation for hosting this peer-to-peer discussion. 

Contact Corey Jannicelli at corey(at) or 202-580-6566 with any questions.
