Crain's Chicago Business Highlights Peer Skill Share Program

In a recent article, Crain’s Chicago Business has recognized the unique model that Pierce Family Foundation has created with our Peer Skill Share Program. The program provides “skill-share” sessions between PFF grantees who are seeking support and information for issues within their organization and their peers who have already developed an  expertise in those areas. The grantees and their peer are matched by PFF and meet over 2-3 hours to talk and connect, with the grantees receiving a micro-grant of $200 for the meeting. As Doug Keneshol, a PFF grantee who was profiled in the Crain’s article says, “The meeting ‘worked fantastically’...‘You can get together for coffee for an hour, and in that hour, a lot of useful information is shared.’”
