Join fellow funders to learn how the Einhorn Family Charitable Trust (EFCT) builds strong relationships with grantees and supports organizational—not only program—performance. Discover how these strategies can shift the funder-grantee power imbalance.
Following an introduction by Margot Rogers of the Leap Ambassadors Community, Center for Effective Philanthropy (CEP) President Phil Buchanan and EFCT Executive Director Jennifer Hoos Rothberg will discuss EFCT’s grantmaking approach, including:
- Building stronger relationships—highlighting findings from CEP’s Relationships Matter: Program Officers, Grantees, and the Keys to Success report—and how EFCT’s approach illustrates the findings in practice. In a 2015 Grantee Perception Report® from CEP, EFCT’s grantees rated them more positively than grantees at the typical funder on a number of key measures.
- Building stronger organizations—highlighting how EFCT leverages the Leap Ambassadors Community’s Performance Imperative by inviting grantees to complete an organizational self-assessment built on seven disciplines of high performance.
