Getting the Greatest “Bang for Your Buck” with Philanthropy
We are pleased that Tiziana Dearing will join us at our next meeting. She will share her research, insights, and experience in discussing how we can get the best bang for our charitable buck. She will explore questions such as: How should we approach the non-profit landscape and assess where our grant money might be best used? How can we discern the organizations offering innovative solutions or most effectively serving their clients? And how should we prepare ourselves to engage in a respectful exchange of ideas with those we seek to support?
