FPN Statewide Funders Convening
on Veterans Issues

In a recent survey of FPN members, funders of veterans issues expressed a strong interest in exploring potential areas for collaboration and networking with other funders, as well in getting more and better information and data about Florida’s veterans population and about what’s working to support the state’s veterans. This FPN convening will address these interests by bringing together grantmakers to connect with each other and hear from state and national experts.

Telling Florida Philanthropy’s Story With Bigger, Better Data

FPN is excited to be part of a new national strategic partnership that aims to achieve a dramatic improvement in the collection and sharing of data on philanthropy. Over the next several months, through this new initiative, FPN will begin working with our members to increase the e-reporting of grants data to the Foundation Center, and to increase the quality of these data. We’ll also unveil a new online mapping tool, accessible to our members, that will allow them to easily visualize the size, scope and impact of philanthropic investments in Florida. [Read More]

Building the Next Generation of Nurse Leaders

An August 2014 FPN webinar discussed how The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation's (RWJF) Future of Nursing Scholars program is helping to create a large, diverse cadre of PhD-prepared nurses, through scholarships and leadership development, committed to long-term leadership careers that advance science and discovery, strengthen nursing education, and bring transformational change to our healthcare system. On the webinar, RWJF and one of its co-funders, the Blue Cross Blue Shield Foundation of Southeastern Pennsylvania, described their involvement and shared how other funders can get involved to expand the program’s reach and maximize its impact.
