NPC Members Register Below/Non-members Register with Philanthropy Massachusetts


Philanthropy Massachusetts, in partnership with the Nonprofit Center of the Berkshires, is taking the Meet-the-Donors series virtual with a session focused on funding in Berkshire County of Massachusetts. We are pleased to welcome a great line up of panelists. Our team includes:

Carrie Holland, Managing Director, Milltown Capital

Lori Gazzillo Kiely, Director, Berkshire Bank Foundation, Inc.

Anne Pinkston, President, Coolidge Hill Foundation

Candace Winkler, President & CEO, Berkshire United Way


Meet-the-Donors is an opportunity to learn firsthand about the grants process. 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, we will utilize virtual break out groups for participants to work together and generate questions that will then be posed to the panelists.


We’ll learn specific information about the participating foundations as well as tips that will be useful for any and all fundraising activities! So bring your questions about general operating grants, budgets, evaluation, stewardship, and whatever you are curious about, to this event.


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.


Hope you can join us!
