• Description

This is a formal examination of grantmaker associations and networks in the U.S. The report, together with its directory and maps, is the first time the field has had a nationwide picture of the myriad and diverse ways grantmakers convene, collaborate, communicate and collectively act across this country. That picture is striking in its size and variety. More importantly it is encouraging - in its potential to serve as a robust nationwide but grassroots-based "web" through which grantmakers can collectively seize opportunities and respond to challenges.
