Learnings from ‘After the Leap’

Starting a Movement Toward Higher Performing Nonprofits

Nell Edgington, Social Velocity, December 6, 2013
Edgington discusses the “After the Leap” conference on her blog, and offers, “This was one of the best conferences I’ve been to in years… It felt like I was witnessing the birth of the next generation of the social sector. Buoyed by the ability to see the writing on the wall, this group is determined to lead the fundamental, and critical, shift towards a more effective sector.”

Not Gettin’ It: Dispatch from After the Leap

Phil Buchanan, Center for Effective Philanthropy, December 5, 2013
Buchanan recaps his Panel Discussion “Do Funders Get It?” at the “After the Leap” conference on the CEP blog, emphasizing the importance of influencing, “more funders to provide what grantees really need. Typical grant sizes remain too small and whatever “capacity-building” that is provided is often of the drive-by variety, not in the intensive patterns necessary to have a positive impact on organizations. Many funders don’t seek to understand grantees goals and strategies, yet our research has shown that is crucial in order to develop strong relationships with the organizations they fund.”
