Inclusive Goals, Priorities, Decisions

Grantmakers for Effective Organizations (GEO) is a coalition of more than 500 grantmakers committed to building strong and effective nonprofit organizations. GEO is partnering with IISC to develop and pilot a customized training for GEO members that focuses on strategies funders can embrace in becoming more inclusive of grantees and other stakeholders when setting goals, determining priorities, and making funding decisions. GEO also partnered with IISC on The Change Agent Project, a national initiative that gathered information about the barriers that prevent grantmakers from optimizing support of their grantees as well as identified grantee-centric innovators in the field of philanthropy.
