The Australian Institute of Grants Management is in the midst of planning its 2017 Conference - to be held in Melbourne on March 2 and 3 - and we're keen to hear from you!
Our 2017 Conference (scheduled for March 3) is changing focus, putting SmartyGrants at the core while retaining the aim of driving towards better practice grantmaking.
We're also contemplating big changes to our Tribal Gathering (scheduled for March 2).
We need your help ensure we build a program that's responsive and relevant.
Please take our 5-minute survey: www.surveymonkey.com/r/JCV6N8B.
The survey will be open until 3pm (AEST) on Friday, October 7.
Thanks so much for your time. We look forward to catching up with you soon!
Four local councils around Australia have been working with SmartyGrants to open up their data. Learn more about the open data pilot project.
Thinker in Residence Chris Borthwick considers the possibilities for artificial intelligence in grantmaking, and suggests that big data has changed the game.
One of the best things funders can do to help grant recipients, and themselves, is to buy better software to help them better monitor outcomes.
Prove it. That's the challenge that runs through every grant program. It's a tough business, but community foundations - 36 locally based philanthropic groups distributing $21 million in grants each year in Australia - have shown us all a way forward.
