The Foundation Review Webinar - Building the Capacity of Networks

Working with networks is a key strategy for most philanthropic efforts to change community systems. The Mary Reynolds Babcock Foundation created a role of network officer, charged with supporting the development of effective networks. Whereas a traditional program officer solicits and monitors grants from a distance, the network officer interacts directly with funded networks, offering advice, posing questions, and assisting with the recruitment of new members.  
This hands-on approach has added value for Babcock-funded networks, especially in becoming more strategic and action-oriented. But the model also introduces complications, especially with regard to the grantmaker-grantee relations.
Join in this conversation with the evaluator and the foundation president for a lively discussion about the internal and external challenges of working in this innovative way with community organizations.
Gayle Williams, President, Mary Reynolds Babcock Foundation 
Sandra Mikush, Deputy Director, Mary Reynolds Babcock Foundation 
Teri Behrens, Ph.D., Editor in Chief, The Foundation Review
