Join the Learning by Giving Foundation (LxG) and its Emerging Leaders Council for an in-depth conversation on impact in the community; “Is the work making a difference?” This event is the second in a four-part series of events for emerging leaders in New England who are interested in philanthropy and social impact, and want to learn how to make their giving impactful.

At this event, philanthropy experts will present on “Impact” from the RISE Framework for Social Change, an evaluation tool developed by Rebecca Riccio, Director of the the Social Impact Lab at Northeastern University which focuses on the nonprofit hallmarks of Relevance, Impact, Sustainability, and Excellence in Management and Operations. Additionally, you will hear from prominent leaders on how they measure impact in their community.
