About this issue
When it comes down to actual practice, does our design and use of reporting match our intentions?
As our field’s first (and sometimes only) opportunity to explore the space between our aims and our impact, grant reports can be a critical part of the conversation between a grantmaker and its nonprofit partners, its peers, and the public. In this issue, we explore the connections, lessons, and relationships that grant reporting could and should be making; how to make changes that benefit grantmaker and grantee both; and other ways that reporting can improve results, plus original research, a curated list of resources, and more.
What's new and notable from PEAK Grantmaking – from exclusive member benefits, to member news, events highlights, and what's ahead.
