Site Visit Essentials for Grantmakers (November 14, 2023)

Understanding site visits as a tool for relationship-building

In recent years, there’s been a push in philanthropy to redistribute power, center relationships, and partner in the spirit of service. Join us to learn how innovative site visit methods that adhere to these principles allow grantees to showcase their strengths within their authentic context.

This session will:

  • Encourage you to reflect on how current practice supports traditional power structures within philanthropy.
  • Enable you to advocate for, design, and carry out site visits in an equitable manner that respects the expertise and capacity of your grantee partner.

Individual Price: $109
Group Rate: $89 per person
