GEO recently released its 2011 National Study of Philanthropic Practice, a comprehensive study of the attitudes and practices of staffed grantmaking foundations in the U.S. In light of the global economic downturn, this survey also highlights some of the key shifts in grantmaking since 2008 and what they mean for supporting nonprofit resilience. GEO convened a webinar to discuss some of the changes in grantmaking practice we are seeing across the field as grantmakers of all sizes respond to the increased demands of grantees, beneficiaries and government institutions. Participants heard directly from innovators in the field about their funding strategies and how they have overcome the challenges that have come their way. The webinar allowed participants to engage with panelists around how to best continue to support nonprofits in this time of increased need.
