About this grant

This grant provides general purpose support to a nationwide network of foundation grant managers. The Grants Managers Network improves grantmaking by advancing the knowledge, skills, and abilities of grants management professionals and by leading grantmakers to adopt and incorporate effective practices that benefit the philanthropic community. Currently, the grantee has over 2,400 members from more than 1,200 grantmaking organizations who represent the breadth of the philanthropic community including small family foundations, prominent national foundations, grantmaking public charities, and socially responsible corporations. Besides serving the needs of grants managers through online resources, publications, research, regional meetings, and an annual conference, the grantee will partner with the Technology Affinity Group of the Council on Foundations to update a much-needed field survey of grants management software.
