In response to member requests for more opportunities to share information with their peers and learn from one another in order to inform effective grantmaking, the Education Affinity Group will convene a portfolio and strategy sharing sessions. Please plan to join us on December 8th where we will discuss education-related grants that are going well and provide a "peer assist" to members who are trying to resolve a challenge related to their grantmaking. There will also be time to provide feedback on the upcoming biennial Survey of Education Giving for 2017.
