Join Philanthropy Massachusetts as we travel to Western Massachusetts with the popular Meet-the-Donors series!

Our Team includes:


James Ayres, Vice President for Programs and Strategy, Community Foundation of Western Massachusetts


Matthew Bannister, First Vice President, Marketing & Innovation, PeoplesBank

Bethany B. Kendall, Executive Director, Amelia Peabody Charitable Fund

Ali Mathias, Director, Community Investments, MassMutual

Magnus Monroe, Grants and Programs Manager, Irene E. & George A. Davis Foundation

You’ll get to know the specifics of each of these grantmaking organizations and also network with peers. Each program includes an introductory portion where we learn about the panelists and what brought them to their role, as well as the details on how and what their respective organizations support. After the introduction portion of the program, attendees will work in groups to develop questions that are of interest to all in their group and then these are posed to the panelists. The program finishes with a 30-minute informal meet and greet portion where you can touch base directly with the panelists and continue networking with your peers.

Meet-the-Donors is ideal for newcomers to the development world and also for seasoned pros who want to participate in a deeper way with the topic at hand or pick up some new insights and recommendations for grantseeking in general.

Light snacks and beverages are included. Hope to see you there!
