Conversations on Capitalization: Moving from Theory to Practice

Monday, October 15, 4:00pm – 5:30pm

Rivo Alto

Organized by Grantmakers in the Arts.

Moderated by John McGuirk, director, performing arts program, The Williams and Flora Hewlett Foundation.

GIA will have had Conversations on Capitalization and Community with over 150 arts funders by the end of 2012. How are those who attended the workshop for funders putting capitalization principles to use in their programs and in their conversations with grantees? Have funders reacted as a collective to address undercapitalization in their funding region? This salon session will be a discussion of the successes and challenges of moving theory to practice based on GIA's National Capitalization Project. Funders who have not attended a Conversations on Capitalization and Community workshop will learn how funder practices can change to promote better financial health for grantees.
