"Real Relationships: Coaching Skills to Cut the BS"
June 8, 2016 |
8:30am to 12:30pm
Many people come to work as program officers wanting to support change and "do good" in the world. Along the way, owing to foundation restraints and changes in priorities and available grant funds, staff can become overwhelmed, even disillusioned, and lose their capacity to communicate honestly with grantees.
Northern California Grantmakers (NCG) and Bay Area Justice Funders Network (BAJFN) invite you to a half-day experiential training that will augment your skills as a program officer.
This event is RSVP only. To RSVP email firstname.lastname@example.org
Webinar: Leveraging the Tax Moment to Build Financial Capability
June 9, 2016 | 2-3:30 pm EDT
Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) and other tax preparation programs have been developing and testing creative ways to connect taxpayers to additional services that can help them open a bank account, save a portion of their refund, check their credit report and more. Some programs have enjoyed great success, while others have encountered challenges.
Join the Taxpayer Opportunity Network, JPMorgan Chase and the EITC Funders Network on a discussion about leveraging the tax moment to build financial capability for low- and moderate-income taxpayers.
This webinar will feature representatives sharing the lessons they've learned about tax-time financial capability integration and the questions they're still trying to answer. Program design theories will also be discussed and how to incorporate client-entered approaches into this work.
