Over the years, PEAK grantmaking has identified several significant gaps as we examined grantmaking practices across different types of funders, much of that based in outdated notions about nonprofits and steeped in white dominant norms that no longer serve the field. As a result, nonprofits are forced to operate within a scarcity mindset unable to think beyond the project funded or the task at hand, with staff often under-supported for the hard work they must do.  


Join us for this session, as we break down the gaps we are trying to bridge to move philanthropic institutions and yours towards abundance. You too can be part of the new narrative on what is needed from philanthropy now to create nonprofits of the future.  


Using Principles for Peak Grantmaking as a pathway, participants will discuss how philanthropic approaches must be adapted to ensure funders are living their values through their operational practices – both inside and outside their organizations – and how this could help spirit a shift toward more abundant nonprofits who are then better equipped for the long, difficult work of community transformation. 


  • Develop a broader understanding of how funder practices are shifting including trends and insights gleaned since 2020.
  • Discuss how funders are navigating and adapting to support race-forward and equity-forward initiatives during this equity-contracting environment.
  • Will have new insights on being “grant ready”.
  • Learn about asset and abundance framing for organizational effectiveness.
  • Be activated champions for securing the support they need to advance their mission (no compromising).
