    Forged from conversations over the last year with members and other leaders in philanthropy, the Principles for PEAK Grantmaking capture our collective vision of grantmaking practices grounded in effectiveness, impact, and continuous improvement.

    As “owners” of the grantmaking process, PEAK Grantmaking’s members are uniquely positioned to tackle issues of implicit and explicit bias in the systems that govern grantmaking. As we alter and adapt the behaviors, attitudes, and the practice of grantmaking, we envision a new landscape for grantseekers, grantees, the social sector itself.

  • How Today’s AI Could Change the Grantmaking of Tomorrow

    Our smartphones, computers, and in-home devices have transformed over the last decade into items that not only can we input data into, but can request data from. We can get a weather report, order a pizza, check the score of the game — all by simply asking. This technology is now commonplace in our homes, and so it stands to reason the next step is utilizing it in our grantmaking. Publication date: July 30, 2018

  • 4 Ways Technology Is Changing Grantmaking (and Why It’s Exciting)

    Contains 2 Component(s)

    Seeing the positive impact of your organization’s grants can be deeply rewarding, yet we all know that the processes involved in grantmaking itself, are often downright tedious and cumbersome—for both the grantmakers and the nonprofits they serve. There is a major role for technology to play in order to break down common administrative boundaries as well as increase capacity and collaboration. In this webinar you will learn about four key areas where technology is most effectively being applied to the philanthropic space. Original air date: July 30, 2018

    Seeing the positive impact of your organization’s grants can be deeply rewarding, yet we all know that the processes involved in grantmaking itself, are often downright tedious and cumbersome—for both the grantmakers and the nonprofits they serve. There is a major role for technology to play in order to break down common administrative boundaries as well as increase capacity and collaboration.

    In this webinar you will learn about four key areas where technology is most effectively being applied to the philanthropic space:

    • Improved efficiency of high volume task completion. With right-sized processes enabled through a configurable system, you can intelligently automate laborious (and repeated) tasks, creating bandwidth for your staff to focus on more value-add activities.
    • Community, community, community. Technology holds a critical role as an enabler to social impact. With more collaborative, more visibility to connections across the ecosystem, technology can facilitate real-time engagements, conversations, forums and channels for efficient, documented, and continuous learning.
    • Delivery of personalized views and learning. Since each member of your organization looks at the same information (just in different ways!), the creation of personalized workspaces is key to the success of all roles in your organizations – program teams, grantees, finance and support, and evaluation officers, alike.
    • Increased accessibility for everyone in your organization. Technology has greatly expanded access to “meet people where they are”. Previously, grants management tools had been trapped inside the walls of a foundation — but now with the reach of the cloud and the ubiquity of smart devices, a new age has dawned for philanthropy grants software and it is making everyone’s lives easier.

  • Foundations Should Fund What Nonprofits Really Need

    Contains 1 Component(s)

    A foundation’s effectiveness is inextricably linked to its ability to remain nimble and responsive amid ever-changing socio-economic-political realities and technological advances. And while it is of course important to fund programs that reduce social ills and disparities, foundations need to be more open to grant requests that aim to improve organizational health and capacity building at nonprofits, too.

    What if grant process could be a path to change itself, a way of shifting who has information and who gets heard? Publication date: July 23, 2018

    What if grant process could be a path to change itself, a way of shifting who has information and who gets heard?

    There are key concepts that we need to transform to embed equity in the grant process. The shift that is possible begins — not with elaborate tools or models — but with opening-up these core concepts and asking ourselves how to build power with others through our work.
