‘From Innovation to Inventiveness’

Posted by Joanne Kelley, Executive Director, Colorado Association of Funders

John Mullaney, Executive Director, The Nord Family Foundation

We ran across this guest post on the “Let’s Talk Philanthropy” blog published by our colleagues at the Ohio Grantmakers Forum. It’s written by John Mullaney, executive director of the Ohio-based Nord Family Foundation. Nord also happens to be a member of the Colorado Association of Funders because the foundation makes grants to a variety of nonprofits here in Colorado.

You can read Mullaney’s thoughts in his post, “From Innovation to Inventiveness,” which touches on the foundation’s work in Denver and explains how the foundation took an invention in Cleveland and helped bring it to scale nationwide.

Join the conversation by commenting at the end of this post. And, remember, we’re looking for more stories to share about philanthropy. Please let us know if you have an idea or if you want to try out blogging yourself. Email me at jkelley@coloradofunders.org.
