Putting Grantees at the Center of Philanthropy

Research shows that grantmakers that are more connected to their grantees—those that have an ear to the ground—are more likely to provide the support that nonprofits need to be successful; they are five times as likely to offer capacity-building support and two times as likely to offer multiyear support. We also know that tapping the knowledge and perspective of grantees and community members builds trust and helps shape more-effective solutions.

Introduction to Grants Research & Roundtable - Southeastern MA

Please join AGM for this FREE WORKSHOP on grants research. With over 4,000 funders in Massachusetts and more than 8 times that number of nonprofit organizations looking for funding, there is a competitive landscape for funding dollars. Funders get bombarded with grant proposals and letters of intent from organizations that are not a fit with their charitable giving.

During this introductory workshop, we will demystify the grants research process, share some best practices, and give you some key takeaways to be on your way to success.
