2013 Annual Program Survey Results - Report for Membership

Posted By Elisabeth Hyleck, Sunday, January 19, 2014
January 2014

ABAG's mission is to maximize the impact of philanthropic giving on community life through a growing network of diverse, informed and effective grantmakers.

As the Resource on Grantmaking, Network for Givers and Voice for Philanthropy, we take great pride in offering quality programs for our diverse membership throughout the year.

In 2013 we held 117 programs and webinars, all designed to assist and inform members to be more effective grantmakers.

In December 2013, we conducted the Fourth Annual Program Survey. The survey was designed to gather feedback to improve the quality of our work and capture the impact our programs may have had on your grantmaking and the community.

Here’s what we learned:

• Our educational programs are consistently the most popular we offer.
• Members continue to value the "right” speakers and information.
• Timing and vibrant discussion with peers is important.
• Grantmaking practice programs are highly valued.
• This year we should support further discussions with peers about working together on specific issues.
• This year members want additional programs on grantmaking practice, education issues and neighborhoods and community development issues.

A personalized email was sent to 117 members who had attended three or more programs between January – December 6, 2013. 41 people responded. The full report has been shared with the full ABAG staff and board. It will also be shared with the ABAG program committee and group leaders.

I am pleased to work closely with our staff and members to conceptualize and coordinate our weekly programs, and thank our membership for taking the time and effort to provide us with ideas and suggestions so we can provide the best possible educational programs in 2014.

If you have ideas for program topics and speakers, we encourage members to use the Program Nomination Form.

For further information on ABAG's events and programs, please contact me, Elisabeth Hyleck, Special Initiatives Director.
