A panel of leaders from a diverse range of nonprofit funders, along with an audience full of consultants and organization staff, made “The Consultant’s Role in Supporting Foundation Results” a huge success. Held at the Department of Youth & Community Development (DYCD), this was the latest event in our year-long series exploring the role of cunsultants in the nonprofit sector.
Moderated by Nonprofit Specialists Board member Laurel Molloy, the session examined a range of topics including:
In what ways are foundations successfully partnering with consultants to support the efforts of their grantees and prospective grantees?
What are some of the challenges of this kind of arrangement?
What are some of the benefits – to the foundation, organizations, and consultant?
How are consultants supporting foundation’s own internal efforts?
Which topic areas and types of support are most in demand? Most useful?
A huge thanks to our featured panelists:
Meryl Jones, Assistant Commissioner, Capacity Building & Professional Development, DYCD
Loren Miller, Senior Director, Policy & Capacity Building, United Way of New York City
Lydia Guterman, Program Officer, Helmsley Charitable Trust
