Intermediaries 101

Intermediaries are a growing part of the ever-changing philanthropic landscape. Yet many questions still exist on the role of intermediaries and the how to best leverage their skills for social change work. At the request of members from and in conjunction with Issue 12 of PEAK Insight Journal, PEAK Grantmaking hosted a two-part webinar series focused on the opportunities that intermediaries provide in catalyzing social change work.

PEAK Grantmaking Executive Director Michelle Greanias explores the many questions facing intermediaries. What are different types of intermediaries and how might they benefit your work? What are the possibilities and potential pitfalls of a partnership with intermediary?

Viewers will:

  • Learn the defining characteristics of intermediaries
  • Understand trends in the field of intermediaries
  • Review intermediaries’ potential for leveraging the power of your grantmaking
