Projects & Publications

Promising Practices R&D

 

I research, write, and advocate for sector-wide initiatives to understand current philanthropic practice and identify promising approaches to better grantmaking.

Organization Development

 

I work with individual funders to strengthen and align culture and practice and redesign grantmaking processes to be most sensible, meaningful, and effective. 

Learning communities

 

I develop and coordinate long-term communities of practice – networks in which participants learn from each other and build knowledge for the field.

Retreats and Workshops

 

I design and facilitate large-scale immersive knowledge building and sharing convenings, intimate planning and group process retreats, and other opportunities to get together and make progress.
