November 6, 2007: 9:30am – 2:00pm

NCG & Philanthropy for Active Civic Engagement (PACE)
present an All Member Gathering

Giving in the Connected Age

What is the essence of the connected age? Why is it different? And what do we need to change about our work as grantmakers to be successful?

Do you ask yourself any of the following questions:

  • How can I integrate technology into my work?
  • What do I need to pay attention to?
  • How do I get started?

This program will provide an opportunity to learn about new technology and methods of connecting, and will highlight how members of our community use these methods to enhance and support their work.

Come join us for a half-day follow-up to the January All Member Gathering to learn how the Philanthropic sector can be engaged with and informed by technology. The program will begin with a keynote from Allison Fine, the author of the highly acclaimed book, Momentum: Igniting Social Change in the Connected Age. The keynote will be followed by engaged discussion moderated by Chris Gates, Executive Director of PACE around specific examples from foundations that have used technology to inform their strategic planning and grantmaking, and will conclude with a networking lunch.

Location TBA (on the Peninsula)
