While much of the current conversation in philanthropy is on strategic grantmaking, there is a growing movement of grantmakers who believe that responding to what communities say they need and strengthening organizations' capacity can achieve important, measurable, long-term results. Two very different foundations discuss their approaches to responsive grantmaking. Learn how to use these techniques to build capacity and sustainability of grantees through the use of core operating support funding, restricted capacity-building grants, and collaboration, as well as how to build trust with grantees, create reciprocal learning between foundations and grantees, and how to evaluate and measure the results.
