Listening to Stakeholders: Focus on Nonprofit User Experience

As traditional grantmaking practices are being up-ended with the global pandemic and renewed energy around racial, social, and economic justice, what’s taking tech so long to catch up? Join PEAK, Technology Association of Grantmakers, GrantAdvisor, and Grantbook for Philanthropy, Tech & Equity, a four-part series illuminating how philanthropy can leverage technology to drive equitable grantmaking practices and build a social justice movement, step by step. We guarantee to satisfy secret (and not-so-secret) accidental techies, data nerds, and tech futurists alike as we take you on a learning journey around philanthropy, technology, and equity.

The first key principle of social justice work: Start with community. We’re kicking off the series hearing from the primary beneficiaries of philanthropy tech – nonprofits. GrantAdvisor, an anonymous tool where nonprofits can leave feedback for their funders, has been tracking what they really think about your online systems – and it’s not all awesome. They have some lived experience to share. We’ll also hear from a grantmaker who listened – and did something about it!
