Building on a Better Foundation: A Toolkit for Creating an Inclusive Grantmaking Organization

This nuts-and-bolts guide begins by identifying four distinct roles played by grantmaking organizations: funder, employer, community citizen, and economic entity. For each of these roles, foundations will find examples of how grantmakers can successfully build an inclusive organization, as well as simple action steps to help guide your client in becoming a more inclusive organization. On a practical level, the guide gives contact information for the grantmakers featured in these examples and a list of additional resources.
