APRIL 2017, UPDATE
GOSW hosted a two-day workshop "Grantmaking for the 21st Century" March 15 and 16 at the Eliot Center.  As they explain the workshop "combined the hard and soft skills of effective philanthropy practice. Participants reflect on the personal mission, identity, and experience they bring to the field while exploring the broader system in which the work happens — the history of philanthropy and emerging trends in the field." Watch for this workshop again next year!
