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 network has over 3,000 individual members from more than 1,500 grantmaking organizations that 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 has launched a three-year, $1.8 million core support campaign to expand its capacity to better serve more grantmakers. The grantee will use a portion of Mott funding to support this campaign.
