Upcoming Events: Informal Chats with Program Staff

New for 2023, we’ve launched a series of virtual conversations hosted by Foundation program officers, grants administrators, and senior staff, including Senior VP Kim DuMont. As part of this series, our hosts will lead informal drop-ins on Zoom, where they and attendees can discuss topics relevant to the Foundation’s mission, focus areas, and grantmaking programs. In these sessions, we’ll open the floor to your questions to allow for a free exchange of ideas without the pressure of formal presentations or forums.

Please register in advance (new sessions are added regularly).
