PEAK Grantmaking

How Do We Change Our Grantmaking When Everything Else Keeps Changing?

Organization Members Only

Funders routinely update strategic plans and welcome new grantees, and we’re used to updating our goals every year. But our world is rapidly changing in so many new ways.

Philanthropy is addressing complex issues like equity, embracing new grassroots partners, and partnering with new donors and supporters, and current grantees are asking for deeper supports and connections. Learn how United Ways are working through these disruptive times, balancing priorities, sharing and engaging with multiple partners, and evolving their role as partners and grantmakers. Conversations include establishing cross-functional internal teams, building capacity of grantees while maintaining long-term community commitments, and co-creating solutions with partners.
