Presented by PEAK Grantmaking and sponsored by Ford Foundation

Grants professionals and members of the PEAK Grantmaking community stand at a critical nexus point within philanthropic institutions, poised to lead change within their organizations and for the field.

We support and empower our expanding network in raising their voices as change-management practitioners to influence shifts towards more equitable grantmaking practices. We are reimagining what it means to be a grants management professional and re-envisioning the impact they can have on the sector.

As we celebrate this important milestone, we are excited to bring together this powerhouse panel to reflect on philanthropy’s evolution over the last 25 years, vision together about the next 25 years, and discuss how grants professionals can lead the way as change agents for operationalizing equity.
