Over the past 20 years, the Annie E. Casey Foundation has helped hundreds of leaders in the public and nonprofit sectors accelerate results for children and families through its signature leadership development approach. Increasingly, leaders in the philanthropic sector, charged with investing in collective impact and collaborative initiatives and partnerships that seek to make large-scale positive change, also need these skills to achieve a measurable difference with the funding decisions they make and the technical assistance and capacity building they offer.
To meet this need, the Foundation is offering Investing in Results, a new program to equip funders to accelerate results.
Investing for Results is a short, intensive program designed to give funders the frameworks, skills and tools needed to shape their grant making so that it clearly communicates and guides the funding organizations, their grantees and partners toward results-oriented and highly collaborative strategies. The first round of the program is comprised of two sessions (April 4-6 and June 6-8), while a second round involves three sessions (July 19-20, Sept. 27-28 and Nov. 7-8).
Applications are due by Jan. 6, 2017, and can be submitted at any time until that date. Selections will be announced by Jan. 23.
