About this grant

Grantmakers for Education is a nonprofit membership organization. Its premier event is an annual conference held during the fall of each year that attracts 200-300 grantmakers. The annual conference provides grantmakers with opportunities to hear from experts in the field, as well as network with peers. The grantee provides other professional development opportunities to help funders connect with colleagues and learn from each other’s work, and disseminates information of interest to its members and the field through reports, a newsletter, and a Web site. This grant increase will help facilitate more collaboration, alignment and partnerships among funders, expand learning opportunities and supports for grantmakers to engage in the public policy arena, and develop a business plan identifying new and more diversified revenue sources.
