Grantmakers for Effective Organizations
Grantmakers for Effective Organizations is a coalition of grantmakers committed to building strong and effective nonprofit organizations. Understanding that grantmakers are successful only to the extent that their grantees achieve meaningful results, GEO promotes strategies and practices that contribute to grantee success.
GEO provides philanthropy's change agents with the resources, ideas and connections they need to make the greatest contribution to the nonprofits they invest in. GEO does this by:
- commissioning and contributing to research,
- developing programs and products, and
- building a community of practice that expands the resources available on nonprofit effectiveness.
Currently, GEO has approximately 4,500 individual members representing more than 500 grantmaking organizations. For more information about GEO, visit www.geofunders.org.
