Grant Managers Network releases Blueprint for the Future 2014-2016

Leave a comment

Grants Managers Network (GMN), a national leader in advancing the “how” of philanthropy, has developed an ambitious Blueprint for the Future  to help grants management professionals and their organizations ensure that grant dollars (tens of billions of available dollars in grants to local, national, and international causes) are delivering successful results.

GMN hopes to maximize philanthropic impact by:

1.  Advancing the knowledge and expertise of grants management professionals so they can lead their organizations to better outcomes.
2.  Accelerating the adoption of proven practices that bring added effectiveness, efficiency and transparency to grant making.
3.  Connecting grants management professionals and the organizations they represent so they can learn and work together to advance the field.

GMN promises to “move our 2014-16 blueprint to reality in two mission-driven ways: first, by meeting the learning needs of grants management professionals so they can achieve the core competencies required to expertly manage grantmaking; and, second, by identifying and promoting practices that get better results for funders and the organizations and initiatives they support.”
