Reporting can be one of the most pivotal points in the grantmaking process. A careful balance must be met in order to ensure grants are on the right track. Ask for too little information and there’s no way you can be sure your grantmaking is reaching the outcomes you set out to accomplish. Too much reporting drains your grantees resources. In order to find the best practices for reporting, Jessica Bearman, a.k.a. Dr. Streamline, set out to find out how grantmakers across the field were striking this delicate balance and whether any best practices had emerged that should be brought to prominence. Come hear about some of her findings and engage in a discussion to see what next steps your organization can take around this critical practice area.
