PEAK Grantmaking is a vibrant, member-led community of more than 7,000 professionals who

management professionals and foster their collaboration to strengthen the practice of
grantmaking. We enable philanthropy to achieve its full potential to fuel change for good. We

PEAK improves how grants get made by building experts in grants management and equipping
them with the most effective practices to implement in their grantmaking organizations. When
grantmaking practices are at their “peak,” more resources are focused on mission over
administration for both grantmakers and grantseekers, leading to greater impact for the causes
and communities served.
