Beyond Grantmaking

Independence Foundation has a long and rich history of enhancing its grantmaking with creative initiatives to support grantees that go well beyond the distribution of funds. Designed with grantees’ expressed interests in mind, the foundation provides learning opportunities for staff and board of grantee organizations that are intentionally confidential and separate from grantmaking.
