FINDING FUNDS LOCALLY

Home Grown Philanthropy at Work on Main Street

November 10, 2010

[LIBERTY] – What is the most effective strategy to raise money for a worthwhile community project?  Sullivan Renaissance will hold a seminar on “Finding Funds Locally” on Wednesday, December 1, 2010 at 7:00 p.m. in the CVI Building in Liberty. 

Jan Jaffe, project leader for GrantCraft (a program of the Ford Foundation), will talk about the concept of “homegrown philanthropy” and give examples of how to effectively tap into the wealth that already exists in one’s community.  Using real world examples, her talk will touch upon:

  • Capturing local wealth
  • Engaging volunteers in new ways
  • Putting data to work
  • Building leadership with newcomers and youth
  • Collaborating across township lines

Jaffe was the Ford Foundation’s first learning director, a designer of orientation and professional development seminars and one of the architects of the program division’s organizational changes in the ‘90s.  She has been a leader in the development of program-related investments at Ford and in the field of philanthropy.  Before that, she was in the public sector where she helped create and run the first Urban Homestead Program for the City of Philadelphia.  She has a master’s degree in urban and regional planning and in business from the University of Pennsylvania.

Jaffe will present her ideas via remote video conferencing.  Everyone is welcome to attend.  Refreshments will be served.  Please RSVP by November 30.  For more information, contact Sullivan Renaissance at www.sullivanrenaissance.org or 845-295-2445.

Sullivan Renaissance is a beautification program designed to enhance the appearance of Sullivan County while building pride and community spirit.
