The National Network of Consultants to Grantmakers

We hope that your organization will consider joining the National Network of Consultants to Grantmakers as a Foundation Member and Partner. We are proud to highlight 4 key benefits that grantmakers such as yourself have found of great value in NNCG:

1) The collective power of our network brings tools and insights to philanthropy to make its work better and increase its impact.

NNCG is a nexus of living knowledge from a dual source: fellow grantmakers and member philanthropy consultants who hold insight on the issues and trends facing the field. Through strategic partnerships, NNCG co-edited nine thought-provoking articles published in The Foundation Review devoted completely to the art and science of philanthropy consulting expanding foundation impact.

2) Access to high-caliber and trusted support for grantmakers

Grantmakers can feel confident partnering with and/or hiring NNCG members via the NNCG Directory, a groundbreaking resource and the only directory of experienced, vetted philanthropy consultants serving all types and sizes of grantmakers and adhere to a Code of Ethical Conduct of Professional Philanthropy Consulting.

3) A unique position to broaden the philanthropic impact of others and to shape field of best practices

When you become a foundation member, you are contributing to thousands of communities – including your own. We train and strengthen the expertise of grantmakers and consultants to grantmakers through monthly webinars on topics like developing robust internal equity practices within foundations, managing family philanthropy dynamics or engaging in effective consultant/foundation partnerships.

4) Access to resources and our Knowledge Center, a searchable, online database of reports, case studies, issue briefs, videos and infographics for and about grantmaking. (Did we mention, all items within NNCG Knowledge Center are authored by NNCG members!)
Continuing to provide grantmaker access to quality consultants and to promote our collective thought leadership, resources, and best practices is the difference between good and transformational philanthropy that NNCG builds upon – the kind of philanthropy that envisions resources better used, communities better served, and funding better spent.
