Funders are changing their approaches in response to COVID-19. What’s going to stick?

Host Organization: Exponent Philanthropy


In April, Exponent Philanthropy and PEAK Grantmaking both surveyed their members to learn how they’ve adjusted their funding approaches in response to COVID-19. Join Melissa Sines, Programs and Knowledge Director at PEAK Grantmaking, and Brendan McCormick, Manager, Research and Education at Exponent Philanthropy, for a discussion on their different survey results. Learn how foundations have changed their approaches, and what practices they anticipate funders will continue to utilize moving forward. Topics will include:

  • More flexible funding, applications, and reporting
  • Streamlining process
  • Focusing on Equity Practices
  • Collaborating with other funders

PEAK Grantmaking’s initial survey results are available here. Exponent Philanthropy’s initial results are available here. PEAK and Exponent will be releasing a joint report on their survey results early this summer.
