Monday, April 19, 2021, 12:00pm – 1:00pm EDT

Time: 12-1pm ET/ 9-10am PT/ 7-8pm Israel

Please join us for a conversation between Jewish Theological Seminary Professor Jack Wertheimer and Deena Fuchs about "Grantees and Their Funders," Jack's report on what professionals at Jewish nonprofits experience while working with funders.

During this session you will also have an opportunity to learn about GrantED: Stronger Relationships, Greater Impact, a joint project of JFN and UpStart launched on March 15. GrantED is a direct response to the findings and recommendations in "Grantees and Their Funders." In addition to organizing programs and facilitated conversations, GrantED offers a wide range of tools, articles, case studies, and other resources on its website (
