Cultivating the Next Generation of Philanthropists

Founders Fellow Katie Muller Reports from the Women’s Collective Giving Grantmakers Conference

From March 12-14, 250 women from across the country gathered in Jacksonville, Florida to celebrate and discuss the power of collective giving grant-making. In this model, individuals pool their money into a fund and, together, oversee a professional grant-making process that awards funding to outstanding nonprofit organizations. Locally, the organization known for this model is Impact100 Philadelphia (of which I am a member and Fellow), but there are dozens of other organizations like it across the country.
