About this grant

Grantmakers for Effective Organizations focuses on improving nonprofit results by creating tools aimed at advancing grantmaker practices. The grantee has improved its membership programs and increased member engagement, created a content-extensive Web site database, and used its due diligence tool to identify due diligence practices that also serve to strengthen the grantmaker-grantee relationship. During the grant period, the grantee will continue to provide a forum for foundation professionals to share research and best practices, offer tools and other information to improve nonprofit effectiveness, and work to identify and address leadership development needs in the nonprofit community.
