Transformation, Transparency, and Ongoing Learning: Focusing Your Foundation’s Approach and Strategy

There are resources available from this event.

To access, please LOGIN or JOIN THE FAMILY.

Hear the story of how one mid-sized family foundation created a new theory of change for its own grantmaking and shifted from a more traditional giving approach to a highly targeted social investing strategy. This webinar will take an in-depth look at the experiences and lessons learned of the Tauck Family Foundation as it engaged in a re-think of its programs and strategies, resulting in a newly adaptive approach, strong relationships with its core investees, a laser-like focus on “what works,” and a commitment to ongoing learning and continuous improvement. Learn how your foundation or giving program might adapt a similar approach, what some of the challenges might be, and why this might be the right approach for meeting your mission.

One of the best webinars I have attended!


Our community-based board has been looking for ways to increase our impact.  This webinar was right on point.

It is great to hear the story of a smaller foundation going through this process.


The speakers knew their stuff and were very passionate about it!
