Peer Learning: Grant Committees

  1. What is the structure of your evaluating body – do you have one core committee or multiple committees (fund, sector, or program dependent, for example)?
  2. What steps has your organization taken to diversify committees and to incorporate participatory grantmaking? How are community members considered for your committee (application process, word-of-mouth, staff-driven, etc)?
  3. Is your organization utilizing content experts for proposal evaluations? If so, are they part of your core decision making body or used as advisors?
  4. Would anyone be willing to share sample committee materials, such as training documents?
  5. Finally, how do you show appreciation to your committee in cases where they are participating on a volunteer basis?
