Funders Can Boost Impact by Investing in Nonprofit Talent: RCLA Fellow Presents New Framework
In his new article, “Talent Philanthropy: Investing in Nonprofit People to Advance Nonprofit Performance,” RCLA Visiting Fellow in Residence Rusty Stahl presents the case for funders to make strategic investments in nonprofit talent programs and systems.
Because people are the most important asset driving performance, innovation and sustainability in the social sector, Stahl notes that funders can enhance the effectiveness of their grantees, and therefore enhance their own impact, by asking essential questions about how best to support talent development efforts within grantee organizations and for the broader field.
Published in The Foundation Review, a peer-reviewed philanthropy journal, Stahl's article offers a robust talent philanthropy framework with considerations for nonprofit talent support systems that can support people throughout the nonprofit career cycle.
