The Merchants Fund overhauled our grant making three years ago and it was time to reflect on our repurposed mission. Donna acted as the convener of our February 2011 Board meeting and led a rich discussion. She was excellent at making sure that everyone at the table had the opportunity to speak. We walked away with a better understanding of how our grant making hangs together as a unified work product. We have an intern from Drexel University this summer and we were able to articulate what we want to research and how to derive more information. If we need to refine our work then we will do it based on data and research. You know you have a great convener when the universal response is, “That was fun.”"
We have worked with some of our clients since we established the firm eight years ago, and many clients have become valued friends and colleagues. There are 25 testimonials from our clients that can be seen throughout this web site, representing all kinds of projects: strategic plans, training programs, year long projects, and workshops. We wish to expand our capacities and our list of clients both locally and around the country and invite you to explore this web site and learn more about our work, our firm and our future.
