Regional Association Programming
Regional associations of grantmakers offer a variety of programming throughout the year for members, nonmembers, grantmakers and nonprofits. The Forum has collected program agendas, ideas, notes, communications pieces and more.
There is also a Program Interest Group Listserv for RA CEOs and staff to share programming questions and successes. If you would like to join this listserv please contact Courtney Moore (703-879-0809).
