How does a foundation whose charitable mission spans different problems, issue areas, and geographies build a common philosophy to its grantmaking? For the Hewlett Foundation, one part of the answer is in our grant practices – that is, the methods and activities through which grants are executed.
In PEAK Grantmaking’s research on how grantmakers are collecting and using demographic data, we surfaced a lot of myths around this topic that are damaging to the goal of being accountable to our communities and collecting this data for responsible and effective use.
Executive Director Michelle Greanias authored an opinion piece to introduce our report on demographic data collection. Read the opinion piece and our key findings, and download the report.
