CNJG is pleased to offer this webinar designed by our colleague Philanthropy Serving Organizations from three Midwest states. Together, they hope to harness and share the collective expertise of each state’s leading philanthropic organizations and trusted community partners.

Community foundations have a long history of working with scholarship donors to create highly selective scholarship funds with specific criteria. How do we begin to shift our work to move away from criteria-heavy scholarship funds that are an administrative burden and move toward maximizing impact? How might we best target our efforts for populations of students from low-income households, students of color and first-generation students? During this conversation, we'll discuss four key components to help you start this transition. You'll learn how to identify key data points to consider in this shift and how to craft strategies for communicating changes to board members, current donors and prospective donors. We'll also hear from community foundations that have re-imagined their scholarship programs.

Speakers:
Colette Hadley, Director of Consulting Services, National College Attainment Network
Liz Newman, Senior Community Engagement Associate, John W. Gardner for Youth and Their Communities

Cost: $50 for CNJG Members and NonMember Grantmakers.

Presented by the Council of Michigan Foundations, Philanthropy Ohio, and Indiana Philanthropy Alliance
