Grantmakers Build Nonprofit Capacity by Advancing Good Governance
The report suggests that grantmakers can play a key role in helping boards employ good governance. Their involvement benefits not just grantees and grantmakers, but communities that depend on the programs and services of nonprofit organizations. Grantmakers engage in governance activities in three ways: with the grantee, with the community, and with the field. These interactions complement one another, nurturing relationships between grantmakers and those they fund -- and helping to build critical capacity in nonprofit organizations.
