TPC Grantee Family Nurturing Center

As we enter our third year of giving, we’ve learned that effective teams don’t just happen – a number of building blocks must be in place: team members with deep and varied expertise, a willingness to learn from one another, a willingness to pitch in and help, and a passion for working with others towards a common goal.

Making Connections
TPC Members Connect with Grantees at Events

In October, we kicked off The Philanthropy Dialogue series, small group discussions facilitated by our Grantees. The most recent facilitated conversation focused on “What Makes a Good Board Member?”

Over 30 members joined the Executive Directors of Coaching 4 Change,
Political Asylum Immigration Representation (PAIR), and School on Wheels MA for an open, honest conversation about what they’re looking for in Board members. It was a perfect expression of TPC’s tag line: Give. Receive. Learn. Click here to read their recommendations.

Please join us next week, in a larger, all-member event at the Cambridge Sheraton Commander. We’ll hear, first-hand, what our pooled giving has made possible. Executive directors of all 8 Grantees will share with us how they empower low-income families to build financial stability, counter child abuse and neglect, help chronically unemployed adults get and keep jobs … and more. TPC members, click below if you haven’t yet RSVP’d.

So we decided to talk to Grantees Marquis Taylor, Executive Director of Coaching4Change and Anita Sharma, co-Executive Director at Political Asylum Immigration Representation (PAIR), about teamwork to see what we could learn.  Read more
