RESCHEDULED: Essentials in Philanthropy: Beyond the Basics

Thursday, March 26, 2020 - 9:00am to Friday, March 27, 2020 - 4:00pm CDT

Due to COVID-19, this training has been rescheduled for June 24 and 25. 


MCF’s Beyond the Basics, a 2-day educational training session, offers a deep-dive into the history and skills needed to understand and engage in effective philanthropic practice. This training is particularly geared towards individuals new to the field or looking to refresh their knowledge and skills. Participants will reflect on their personal mission, identity and experience they bring to the field while exploring the broader system in which the work happens - the history of philanthropy and emerging trends in the field. Participants walk away with new skills around navigating power dynamics, advancing effective philanthropy and bringing equity into their work. See a preview of the sessions, here
