Driving the Future Member Voices

Learn what PEAK Grantmaking members and leadership have to say about our strategic direction.

Calling for Collaboration

Utilizing the knowledge base and my colleagues has resulted in efficiencies in my work that afford me the opportunity to do more.

What You See is What You Get

Grantmaking doesn’t stop with ‘how.’ Organizationally and personally, ‘why’ is just as important. Your foundation fulfills a mission, and how you make grants expresses that mission and the values behind it.

The Way We Do the Things We Do

The grantmaking process is never identical, grantee to grantee, but there are commonalities. Applications that come in are coded and assigned; grantmakers perform due diligence; grants are approved, paid, and monitored.

Still the One

PEAK Grantmaking’s new strategic plan lays out renewed dedication to professional development, even for a seasoned grants manager like me.

Setting a Vision for Our Future

The primary focus has and will continue to be what is most important to us as an organization and that is highlighting the criticality of grants management and its evolution to our members and across the philanthropic sector.

Improve Philanthropy, Improve the World

According to the Foundation Center, 86,726 foundations distributed more than $60 billion in 2014 alone — transforming countless lives, communities, & ecosystems.
