Arizona Grantmakers Forum's members are welcome to join the Alliance + Arizona Grantmakers for this informational webinar, presented by Bonterra and the Virginia G. Piper Charitable Trust, centered on the Jumpstart Program. Deployed by grantmakers across the country, Jumpstart is a tech-enabled and cohort-based nonprofit capacity building program, recently piloted by Virginia G. Piper Charitable Trust in Maricopa County. 

In addition to unpacking the outcomes from this pilot cohort, attendees will hear from two nonprofit leaders who participated in the program. Join us to learn more about the program, as well as the broader confluence of nonprofit technology and capacity building!
