My final social impact tip is to ensure evaluation is central to your foundation and/or corporate giving - such as ensuring your grantmaking is equitable.
Want to know if your grantmaking is equitable? Check to see where you land on the “Equitable Grantmaking Continuum”
This link provides a simple framework for funders to assess how equitable their funding practices are. While nonprofits are appreciative of foundation support, the reality is that many foundations’ practices are often harmful to organizations, especially those led by and serving communities of color and other marginalized communities. Thus, I highly recommend utilizing this tool to determine if you are a Level 1, Level 2, or Level 3 funder - and consider the scoring metrics within the tool as guiding posts if you are seeking to increase your score!

This is so helpful! Equitable grantmaking can sometimes feel like a complete black box (anyone else feel that way?). This framework really helps put it in context. Definitely worth checking out. Thanks Jessica!
