PEAK Grantmaking

PEAK2022 Online

Make your plans for PEAK2022 Online!

From March 21–25, 2022, we’re bringing our community together for a weeklong virtual conference centering on what it looks like to “live your PEAK.” Together, we’ll imagine how grantmaking can truly embody what PEAK stands for: Principles, Equity, Advocacy, and Knowledge.

Taking inspiration from thought-provoking keynotes, interactive peer dialogues, skill-building breakouts, and networking gatherings, the PEAK2022 experience will leave you empowered to lead change in your organization and the sector at large.

Plus, we’ll celebrate the great city of New Orleans by infusing the experience with a NOLA vibe!

Who should attend PEAK2022? 

Our audience is expanding each year. Currently, it consists of professionals at all types and sizes of funding institutions working in grants management, IT, programs, operations, evaluation and learning, and executive-level roles. Speaking generally, these professionals are multidisciplinary in background and play a part in stewarding the grantmaking process within funding institutions. 

What is PEAK’s virtual meeting code of conduct? 


Are scholarships available? 

Yes! We recognize that not everyone can afford to attend professional development opportunities. Scholarships that cover all individual registration fees are a way that we try to eliminate that barrier for those that would like to attend our annual conference. 

Eligibility: Scholarships are open to any individual working for a grantmaking institution or philanthropy support organization. You must be a U.S. citizen and member of PEAK Grantmaking. 

Scholarship applications are due by January 31, 2022.
Accepted applicants will be notified by February 28, 2022. 


What is your cancellation/substitution policy? 

Requests for PEAK2022 Online conference registration cancellation and fee refunds must be received by March 2, 2022 and are subject to a $50 non-refundable administrative fee. No refunds will be granted for requests received on or after March 16, 2022. 

Participants may avoid the $50 cancellation fee by transferring their registration to a colleague or peer with the same membership level or by electing to apply their conference fee to a future paid event within the same calendar year. Any balance not applied to an event by December 31, 2022 is forfeited. 

Requests for cancellations and substitutions must be submitted in writing to 


When will the conference app be available? 

The conference app and website will go live in mid-March 2022. At that time, you’ll have the opportunity to explore the platform on your desktop computer or via mobile; add sessions to your schedule; and start to connect with vendors, speakers, and others attending the conference. 

Will I receive copies of session presentation materials? 

All available session materials will be available in the conference app. 

What is the photo/video/media policy for the event? 

During PEAK2022, we will be photographing and recording various aspects of our programs, and your image, voice, and chats might be captured. In addition, we capture evaluation data for programming design and testimonial purposes. Through event registration, attendees accept the terms of our release: 

Photography/Video/Audio Release
By participating in this conference, you authorize PEAK Grantmaking to use and reproduce any photographs, videos, chats, and audio recordings taken, for promotion or distribution. PEAK Grantmaking recognizes that people have varying levels of comfort being recorded.
