Grassroots grantmaking programs are most effective when they are strategically designed with careful consideration of a local community’s civic engagement and neighborhood development infrastructure and an honest assessment of the funding organization’s culture and available resources.
This Getting Ready Roadmap is designed to guide a funding organization in their initial assessment of the external and internal factors that will influence their grassroots grantmaking program design, and to help the organization to better position themselves and their grassroots grantmaking program for impact.
The accompanying Word document is designed for downloading for work on your own computer or duplication for group work.
