Dur­ing an upcom­ing webi­nar, learn about emerg­ing fund­ing prac­tices that strength­en rela­tion­ships among grant mak­ers, com­mu­ni­ty orga­niz­ers and oth­er non­prof­it lead­ers. The ses­sion is spon­sored by the Annie E. Casey Foundation’s grantee Insti­tute for Fam­i­ly and Chapin Hall at the Uni­ver­si­ty of Chicago.

They will lead a pan­el of experts in dis­cussing how fun­der-grantee part­ner­ships can fuel inno­va­tion and change in com­mu­ni­ties to sup­port fam­i­ly well-being.
