Conversations on Capitalization and Community Workshop

Tuesday, December 15, 2020 | 9:00 AM – 12:00 PM (for nonprofit organizations)

Essex County Community Foundation invites you to participate in Grantmakers in the Arts’ Conversations on Capitalization and Community Workshop. This virtual workshop is free with support from The Barr Foundation. For nonprofit organizations, we encourage participation by two or more board and senior staff members whose roles include oversight of the organization’s finances.

The goals for Conversations on Capitalization and Community are to:

    • Elevate the knowledge of capitalization for nonprofits and their funders, particularly during a recession
    • Provide shared vocabulary that grantmakers and grantees use to inform and transform grantmaking and nonprofit financial practices
    • Provide insight into having effective dialogues between funders and grantees
    • Create a greater sense of complementary practice and camaraderie for a stronger, healthier arts and culture ecosystem

The workshop will be led by nationally-recognized arts finance consultant Rebecca Thomas of Rebecca Thomas & Associates (formerly with Nonprofit Finance Fund) and senior staff from Grantmakers in the Arts. More than half of our Capitalization and Community workshop participants have said that they’ve changed their grantmaking practices to support their organizations more responsively and deliberately after having participated in the workshop. Learn more about the event.

Please RSVP to Sylvia Jung at by December 3, 5pm ET. We can accommodate 40 participant and will accept reservations on a first-come, first-served basis. In your RSVP, please specify the date of the workshop for which you’re rsvp’ing. Please also provide your name, email, title, and organization.
