About this grant

This grant will provide partial support to Grantmakers for Children, Youth and Families. Initially established in 1985 as an affinity group of the Council on Foundations, Grantmakers for Children, Youth and Families seeks to engage member funders and grantmakers across all sectors in continually improving their grantmaking on behalf of children, youth, and families. The grantee provides a forum for grantmakers to collaborate and network as it relates to developing and refining grantmaking strategies, sharing information about effective programs, being knowledgeable of public policy developments, and dialoguing with national leaders in the field. This grant will support ongoing activities including the annual conference, networking events, and other collaborative learning opportunities.
