March 2008Vol. 9, No. 2Strategies for Managing the End of Funding
A grant program may come to an end for many reasons, for example, a foundation may change its priorities, phase out a program, or close out a grant at the end of a funding cycle. A new guide from the GrantCraft series, The Effective Exit: Managing the End of a Funding Relationship, provides strategies to help grantmakers ease the transition for grantees. Strategies discussed include:
- Good ongoing communication with the grantee
- Assisting the grantee in strengthening its own organizational capacity
- Helping the grantee find new funding
The guide was written by Anne Mackinnon and Jan Jaffe. Underwriting for the guide was provided by the Ford Foundation.
