A recording of this presentation is available here.
GIA launched the National Capitalization Project in 2010 to help funders share vocabulary, concepts, and principles on how to better financially support the arts organizations they fund. In the past three years, funders in 15 cities across the US came together to discuss what they could do, individually and collectively, to improve grantee success through their grantmaking practices. In this session, one private and one public funder will describe how they incorporated ideas from the conversations. Martha Richards and Kathy Hsieh will share how their organizations’ grantmaking practices have evolved, efforts to use a racial equity lens in implementing strategies, and how they are continuing to transform their work with their boards, colleagues, funding consortium members and most importantly, with grantees.
