Grantmaker Speaker Series: Bill Somerville, Philanthropic Ventures Foundation 

March 19, 2014 — By Heath Wickline

As part of our Grantmaker Training Series, Bill Somerville of Philanthropic Ventures Foundation talked to Hewlett Foundation staff about "Investing in People." During his talk, Bill challenged us to reduce the paperwork burden we place on our grantees and focus on people we believe can make a difference rather than our own concepts and strategies.
