The theme for the Spring 2020 Conference is ‘Being an Open Grant Maker’. Are you and your board open to new ideas and ways of working and investing, or does your organisation want to keep operating in the same way that it has for many years?

The day will start with a YFF Roundtable and the programme is as follows:

  • Paul Streets OBE, CEO of Lloyds Bank Foundation will talk about the importance of listening to those we fund, partnerships and adapting to a changing world.
  • Focus on collaborative work in York to tackle the homeless issue with Two Ridings Community Foundation and Peasholme Charity.
  • We’ll hear from three panel members – Leeds Community Foundation, The Good Exchange and Grantadvisor.org.uk – who will tell us about various new influences on our grant making and the way we operate, including Tripadvisor for grant makers which we all need to be aware of!
  • Responsible Investing session so delegates can learn more about how to develop a ‘responsible’ or ethical investment strategy and policy which reflects your organisation’s ethos.
