* NNCGListserv – MembersOnly* – An invitation to participate in a research project:  I know many of you from various stages of my long career in the philanthropy field – some from my days as a foundation CEO or trustee, others from conferences we attended, and still other who took courses at NYU or Penn where I have taught many hundreds of funders from around the world.   For the last few years, I had significantly reduced my advisory work to concentrate more on my lecturing and teaching, and serving as a trustee of several foundations.  For a variety of reasons, I have decided to modestly reactivate my advisory work and, thus joined NNCG last month.

The new strategic plan will focus the grantmaking attention to a more cohesive impact-oriented structure.  Please see attached RFP for more details. (4/23/20)
