Event Description:

Which comes first, community need or donor intent? Does the nonprofit funding system make room for both? Do organizations tweak their goals in order to meet a funder’s interests? Do funders respond to community needs or do they honor their own missions? How do arts funding and religious giving fit within social change? These questions and more will be addressed by several panelists, including Ellen K. Annala, CEO, United Way of Central Indiana; John T. Neighbours, board chair, United Way of Central Indiana; two members of the Indiana Grantmakers Alliance (family foundation and corporate perspectives); and two members of the Association of Fundraising Professionals, Indiana Chapter. Tim Seiler, director of the Fund Raising School at the Center on Philanthropy at Indiana University, will moderate. Q&A and reception will follow. Admission is free; pre-register by October 29. Presented by the Center on Philanthropy at Indiana University; Association of Fundraising Professional, Indiana Chapter; Indiana Grantmakers Alliance; and United Way of Central Indiana.
