About this grant

LearnPhilanthropy is a collaborative initiative to build an online, fieldwide hub for grantmaker learning. The project was developed by a network of grantmakers and philanthropy support professionals so the philanthropic infrastructure can more efficiently and effectively serve the field. Incubated by the Council on Foundations and the United Philanthropy Forum, LearnPhilanthropy is now hosted by the Dorothy A. Johnson Center for Philanthropy, a unit of the College of Community and Public Service at Grand Valley State University in Grand Rapids, Michigan. It currently has 67 content partners consisting of a wide variety of philanthropic support organizations. This grant will support recruiting more content providers, increasing traffic to the site, adding new content, and developing online courses for new foundation staff and trustees.
