Evaluation and continually improving your grantmaking practices help to grow your impact, increase transparency and get the best return on philanthropic investments. All grantmakers have core values that motivate and inform their work, even if they aren’t explicitly stated. However, those values often aren’t reflected in their grantmaking practices.

Once the strategy is set, it is critical to educate your nonprofit partners on your new focus areas and notify long-term grantees if they no longer fit into the selected priority areas.
