Revisiting Creative Approaches to Capitalization and Capacity Building

Tuesday, March 26, 2:00pm EDT / 11:00am PDT [PASSED]

  • Anna Campbell, senior program officer, Howard Gilman Foundation
  • Roman Jackson, program officer, JP Morgan

Session 2 of the 2019 Webinar Series.

A recording of this presentation is available here.

At the Grantmakers in the Arts 2018 Conference, we offered a conference session on capitalization where participants shared best practices and explored creative solutions for when restrictions make capitalization and capacity building much more difficult. But how did that work out? What were the solutions and how can you build on that? Now is your chance to explore what you missed or revisit this topic once again.

Join us on March 26 to hear from Anna Campbell, senior program officer, Howard Gilman Foundation, and Roman Jackson, program officer, JP Morgan. They will guide us through some brief capitalization fundamentals, revisit case studies, and compare outcomes from this GIA 2018 conference session.

For the deaf or hard of hearing, live captioning is available by request. Please contact Sherylynn Sealy, GIA program manager, at least three (3) business days prior to the webinar to request live captioning.
