Publication date:

This GMN guide helps funders measure the effectiveness of current practices by assessing five core questions every grantmaker should be able to answer about how it makes grants:

  • Does our grantmaking align with our intentions?
  • Are our grants structured to be successful?
  • Are we efficient in our internal processes?
  • Are we communicating effectively?
  • Does our process strengthen and support grantees?

The guide includes recommended measurement indicators and advice on how to find and present the results.
