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