Successes and Failures of Leveraging Challenge Grants

Monday, October 13, 1:45 pm – 3:15 pm
Dogwood B, M1/Street Level

Organized by John R. Killacky, program officer, arts and culture, The San Francisco Foundation. Presented by John Killacky; Ben Cameron, program director for the arts, Doris Duke Charitable Foundation; Diane Sanchez, director of grantmaking and donor services, Eastbay Community Foundation; and Judilee Reed, executive director, Leveraging Investments in Creativity

Throughout the years, grantmakers have tried challenge grants in an effort to increase organization's fund development capacities, i.e. Ford's mid-sized arts organizations, Duke's presenting organizations, Leveraging Investments in Creativity, and the East Bay and San Francisco Community Foundation's small arts organizations. Representatives of these foundations will speak candidly on the successes and shortcomings of these programs and dialogue with our peers about similar programs in their foundations.
