July 2016

We love summertime at The Philanthropy Connection. Why? Because we slow down and take time to practice the “3Rs”:

June = Rest
July = Reflect
August = Reassess

Now that we’ve rested [✓] and reflected [✓], we’re gearing up to reassess how we can streamline all that TPC does. Among the revisions we will be unveiling next month is a new grants calendar. Stay tuned … 

For now, we’d like to take a moment to welcome and celebrate who’s new at TPC: 69 new members and 8 new Grantees (plus 2 returning Grantees).

Welcome, Newbies!
