OGF Becoming New “App” for Ohio Philanthropy

January 23, 2012 at 1:25 pm Leave a comment

In today’s digital age, most of us are familiar with “apps” that are downloaded to mobile devices to link us to needed data. OGF is about to launch an “app” that is much more than an icon on a digital screen. By expanding our electronic and in-person networks, all forms of philanthropy in Ohio will eventually be able to share ideas, exchange information and promote preferred practices. We’ll be explaining more about this in conversations with members being held in 7 cities across the state from February through April.

Whether an Ohio funder’s interests are place- or position-based, determined by funder type or funding interest, OGF’s interconnected network will become an indispensable “app” for achieving greater impact, more effectiveness and better results. Our new strategy will add value to personal and professional life whatever role a person plays in their grantmaking organization, whether trustee, program officer, CEO, grants manager or CFO.

OGF members can contact Melissa Forbes,  for more information about these meetings:

February 7: Cincinnati
February 15: Dayton
March 14: Zanesville
March 27: Columbus
April 2: Cleveland
April 4: Canton
April 18: Toledo
