How has the environment changed over the last year as things have opened up more? What critical issues still need to be addressed in the community? Are there some examples of nonprofits that have shined over the last year in terms of evolving and addressing key community concerns?

Well we have the person that can help you find answers to these and other questions on Monday November 14th, 2022 • 9:30 am – 10:30 am as we talk with Dan Sharpe

Dan joined The Columbus Foundation in 2004. His responsibilities include overseeing the development and implementation of grant policies, program priorities, and strategic grantmaking. Under his leadership, the Community Research and Grants Management team plays a unique role in convening community discussions around areas of need, and participating in community initiatives and partnerships to address these needs.

Additionally, he has served as an officer for Community Research and Grants Management, online media manager for Communications and Marketing, and project manager of easy Columbus, the regional college student engagement and retention effort, where he managed the program’s research, construction, and implementation.

In 2016, Dan was selected to participate in the Harvard Business School Executive Education Young American Leaders Program (YALP)—a program of the U.S. Competitiveness Project at Harvard Business School. He is a graduate of Leadership Columbus and a past co-chair of the Create Columbus Commission.
