Smarter Grantmaking: Strengthening Relationships with Grantees and Supporting Nonprofit Resilience Learning Module

We know that grantmakers who understand and act in the best interest of grantees achieve better results. Practicing smarter grantmaking can make the difference between a pretty good performance and achieving the best possible results. But, where should you start? This learning module explores the variety of ways grants managers can take steps to improve their organization’s grantmaking practices. With a particular focus on supporting nonprofit resilience and improving relationships with grantees, this Learning Module draws on insights from GEO's Smarter Grantmaking Playbook and findings from GEO’s 2014 field study to spark participants’ thinking, questions, and reflections on their own grantmaking practice. Webinar run time: 57 minutes.
