With the current emphasis on strategic giving and measurement of impact, the role of intuition is often overlooked. In this teleconference, featuring  Kathleen Odne, Executive Director, Dean and Margaret Lesher Foundation and Chet Tchozewski, President Emeritus, Global Greengrants Fund, we break the taboo on using intuition in decisions and show why not doing so can be costly. This teleconference explains how family philanthropists can quickly harness their semi-conscious knowledge and experience built over a lifetime to bring informed intelligence to their grant decisions.

“I found the ideas discussed in today’s teleconference to be extremely applicable to my work as ED of a small family foundation. It was affirming to hear such specific language around the concept of intuition and I am very much looking forward to sharing this information with my board and applying it to our work.”


I am a very analytical person, so seeing this view on grantmaking was very valuable to me.


The Art of Intuitive Grantmaking forced us (as funders) to think about how crucial the application of intuition is to our daily decision-making and to recognize how significantly it factors into not only funding decisions, but also governance and administrative decisions.
