PEAK Grantmaking

Strategies for Tying Grantmaking Practices to Values

To transform the practice of philanthropy into the practice of principled grantmaking, we worked with our members to develop five Principles for Peak Grantmaking — Tie Practices to Values; Narrow the Power Gap; Drive Equity; Learn, Share, Evolve; and Steward Responsively. In this webinar, we introduce our first Principle: Tie Practices to Values. Grantmaking practices are often the lens through which grantseekers experience grantmakers’ values. Practices bound inextricably to an organization’s values can lay the foundation for trusting relationships, met expectations, and true partnerships –– as well as better, more sustainable outcomes. We explore our learning strategy for our members, highlight a member doing this work well, and share resources we have available.
