Grantmaker Effectiveness and Accountability
The Forum's two-year Effectiveness and Accountability initiative seeks to increase philanthropic effectiveness and fulfillment of the public trust, at the regional level. The main goals of this initiative are to:
- Enable regional associations to provide grantmakers with the necessary educational resources to assist them in dealing with the critical issues surrounding accountability and effectiveness.
- Help regional associations and their members to develop, adopt, and implement guiding principles for grantmakers.
- Increase the capacity of regional associations to build and sustain relationships with state officials and policy makers who have responsibility for the oversight of the charitable sector.
- Strengthen the ability of regional associations to communicate positive messages about philanthropy.
