Just as the Seybert Foundation encourages its grantees to seek partnership opportunities that would yield greater efficiency and maximum impact for the communities they serve, Seybert partners with local and national organizations that add value to our efforts. In 2017, we held our inaugural Symposium, an event where our grantee partners could share ideas and network. Learn more about this event through the Symposium 2017 slideshow. The links below feature some of the many resources that Seybert relies upon to effectively achieve our mission, in addition to our grantee partners. The Foundation encourages others to learn more about the ways in which these organizations might increase our collective impact:
