Smart Risk Management for Greater Impact

As many funding organizations begin to re-examine their risk tolerance in light of the pandemic and the global uprising for racial justice, PEAK Grantmaking offers this self-paced online course to help grants managers expand their knowledge about risk, as they implement more flexible and streamlined grantmaking practices.

Supported by resources from PEAK Grantmaking and Open Road Alliance, and created with input from our members, this course will help you better understand and manage risk throughout the grantmaking lifecycle, and help you answer these questions:

  1. How can we streamline our processes while being thoughtful about potential risks?
  2. How do our values show up in our policies and practices related to risk?
  3. How does a low tolerance for risk feed into practices that support bias in the grantmaking process?
  4. How can we have better conversations with our grantees about potential risks and potential mitigation or contingency plans?

The course features self-paced interactive learning, narration, and real-world scenarios that reinforce concepts and provide context during the learning experience. Resources and take-away samples will support your continuing work after you complete the course.
