As the sun sets on the Haigh-Scatena Foundation – a grant maker for social advocacy that will spend out its funds this year – CEO Clement recalls the pattern that led to what he believes to be the foundation’s best work: “understanding why we provided support, realistic expectations, and a close relationship with grantees.” That theme runs throughout this quick-read guide to funding endeavors for social change. An excellent read for grant seekers, trustees and grant makers on how to work together effectively, the guide wraps up with a delightfully peculiar imaginary conversation between a grant maker and a casino executive.
