Body of Knowledge

BOKWhat Grants Managers Know and Do

The Body of Knowledge (BOK) is a framework of knowledge held by grants management professionals throughout the field of philanthropy. Since 1996, GMN has connected grants management professionals across the country to share best practices and improve grantmaking. In today’s changing philanthropic environment, these professionals need more efficient access to relevant resources, up-to-date best practices, and professional development opportunities.

To make better use of the comprehensive information contained in the Body of Knowledge, GMN is using the BOK as a guide for creating online and in-person learning opportunities for members. The BOK is no longer available independently, but elements of it will inform the larger learning program created through MY GMN.
