Transformational GivingSM Webinar Series


Energize Your Grantmaking and Transform Your Impact!

Are you ready to dramatically improve your philanthropic impact?

As a trusted global advisor to philanthropy, I’m excited to share what I’ve learned from nearly two-decades in the field – please join me for my new Transformational Giving live webinar series where you will have the opportunity to interact with me LIVE and ask questions in real time.

In this series, we will discuss the many ways which grantmakers waste time, energy and money and how to solve the problem to improve your giving and achieve greater impact. Together, we will explore new ideas, enlighten your perspective on philanthropy, and provide you with concrete tools and strategies to get more impact from every charitable dollar. I guarantee this video series will be a valuable resource that will benefit you and your organization all year long.

As an added bonus, with each webinar you will receive FREE valuable resources (valued at over $895) such as a complimentary coaching call, white papers, my Confident Giving book, discussion questions and more!

Can’t make one of the broadcasts? No need to worry – all videos will be available for download to review at your convenience and to share with your organization!

Kris’s new Transformational Giving live webinar immediately prompted us to explore and evaluate how we interact with our grantees – especially during our grantmaking process. Her practical tips are incredibly helpful, and I highly recommend this series to other funders!
