Grantmakers for Effective Organizations (GEO) exists to help grantmakers turn their desire to improve into real progress. The GEO community bridges the gap between grantmaking as usual and transformational change. Our community includes more than 6,600 grantmakers working together to turn a hunger for more effective philanthropy into clear pathways for achieving it. We're cutting through the noise to lift up the practices that matter most to nonprofits. GEO cultivates a community for grantmakers to work with their peers while they are navigating the same journey towards improvement.
