Rusty and I had a great conversation with Brittany from Seattle and Kevin from Boston - cities with an emerging chapter and an established chapter, respectively. We talked about the relationships between foundation officials and non-profits mostly. One idea we talked about was if foundations are transparent about strategies and missions, then much of the power-dynamic awkwardness would be solved. Have you had successful relationships with grantees? What were the characteristics of those relationships?
