Glasspockets Find: Net-Centric Grantmaking - Increasing Social Impact in a Networked World
October 17, 2011

Foundation leaders met in San Francisco on October 17 to discuss their experiences with embracing a network mindset, supporting and catalyzing networks, and sharing and investing in network learning.

Part of a conference on networking convened by Grantmakers for Effective Organizations and Monitor Institute, this interactive panel discussion looked at both the challenges and opportunities for taking on more open and collaborative approaches to grantmaking. The panel included Chris van Bergeijk (Hawaii Community Foundation), Steve Downs (the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation), Stephanie McAuliffe (the David and Lucile Packard Foundation), and Rafael Lopez (the Annie E. Casey Foundation).

How has your organization embraced a network mindset? How has it changed the way you work?
