Grantmakers in the Arts launched the National Capitalization Project in 2010 to encourage funders to implement more effective grantmaking practices that support financial stability and success in their grantees and in the arts community. Since then, GIA has led “Conversations on Capitalization and Community” for funders and grantees in over 15 communities. These workshops have stimulated honest dialogue about grantmaking and management practices that undermine financial health in the nonprofit arts sector. They provoke discussions about the kinds of money that organizations need most to manage uncertainty and risk and to pursue opportunities for change. Join Rebecca Thomas, principal and founder of RTA, for a session on the fundamentals of investing in your grantees' financial fitness. This session can serve as a brief refresher for past “Conversations” participants or introduce key initial ideas to funders who have not yet been part of a conversation in their own local communities.
