2010 Webinar Series

Grantmakers in the Arts presents a new series of Web Conferences designed for emerging leaders in the grantmaking field and veteran grantmakers who want to revisit the information and discussions that inform their day-to-day practices. We have an assembled a team of arts philanthropy leaders and innovators, as well as experts in nonprofit finance and law, to address key topics of interest to arts grantmakers.

Each dynamic, 50-minute presentation includes audience interactive features that enable all participants to directly engage the presenters. And as an added perk, following the presentations, participants will have access to a dedicated page on the Grantmakers in the Arts website where they can pose questions, submit information, and interact with the presenters and other Web Conference participants.

This series is free to the staff and board members of GIA member organizations. The fee for nonmembers is $35 per session.
