About this event


There’s a well-known idiom that states: “some things are easier said than done.” We all start with the best intentions –– grantmakers want to help their grantees achieve the greatest impact possible. Sometimes, however, challenges such as inadequate resources, lack of buy-in or limited information can inhibit change. Because although change is possible, it isn’t always easy.

Are you seeking ways to spur positive changes within your personal grantmaking practice, or that of your organization, to help grantees achieve more meaningful results? If so, we invite you to join your GEO community peers for a highly-interactive learning experience: Smarter Grantmaking Starts Here.

This deep dive into smarter grantmaking practices provides the space for you to learn from seasoned practitioners within the GEO community and ask your burning questions. The series will also give you an opportunity to pinpoint some of the challenges that can inhibit change, reflect on your experiences and challenges, and identify key actions you can share with your team to improve practice.

This five-session online course gives GEO members an opportunity to learn more about grantmaking approaches — strengthening relationships with grantees, supporting nonprofit resilience, learning for improvement and collaborating for greater impact — and practices that nonprofits say contribute most to their success. Active participation is required in order to help you gain the most from this series.
