Making Meaningful Change
GEO frequently hears that grantmakers, no matter their role, want to make meaningful changes in how they operate in order to make progress on the issues that matter most to them. The most recent GEO member surveys show that nearly two-thirds of members are involved in some kind of change effort, driven by a desire to better serve the nonprofits and the communities they support. Determining exactly how to lead, implement and sustain that change can be tricky. Grantmakers understand that thoughtful and intentional efforts — a process, a plan, a team-oriented approach — are necessary to make real change.
