Capitalization Salon

Going One Step Further


Monday, October 10, 10:00 am – 11:30 am

Organized by Lisa Cremin, director, Metropolitan Atlanta Arts Fund.

This salon will expand on GIA's National Capitalization Project and illuminate key ideas from the article published in the Spring 2011 GIA Reader. A facilitated conversation for grantmakers with all levels of capitalization expertise, the room will be peppered with grantmakers who have extensive experience with capitalization strategies. We will delve further into the challenges and benefits of capitalization grantmaking, looking at what works well and what doesn't, long-term grantmaking in capitalization, the notion of risk capital, the possibilities of sustaining operating reserves established with capitalization grants or surpluses, and more.
