Changes Coming in 2018

Happy New Year Members of the GRGM family,

We are excited about the prospects that the new year holds for our network of funders. The philanthropic sector continues to undergo positive changes relative to including those most affected in decision making and program designs. The past year Grassroots showcased some of these models during our signature “On the Ground” event in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania.

The Board of Directors and staff have been hard at work incorporating an equitable platform into our grassroots grantmaking strategy.
We want to keep you abreast of some changes to look for in 2018.

1) Grassroots Grantmakers is currently hiring for the Executive Director position. Our thanks to Lisa Duran for her leadership during our previous transition phase. It is our hope and belief that our next Executive Director may very well emerge from our network. For more information, take a look at the position description: Executive Director Position.

2) We will soon unveil a new regional approach to our work. The new configuration will ensue a rich array of webinars, workshops, learning groups and networking opportunities are offered and tailored to regions around the country.

3) Join us on Twitter as we discuss some of the most compelling voices and changes in philanthropy over the last year and expectations for 2018.

4) Always striving to outdo the last event, GRGM will unveil exciting new membership benefits and additions to the “On the Ground” experience. Keep an eye on the website.

We look forward to a fruitful and productive 2018 with our membership.

DeAmon Harges,
Board Chairman
