Good grant making entails more than just being an expert in your community or field of interest. It requires a set of tools and skills developed over many years, by many people, in many types of foundations.

That's why, in 2001, we launched GrantCraft to serve a source of practical wisdom for grant makers, and supported its growth and development for 10 years.

In February 2011, we were proud to announce the next chapter for GrantCraft, including a new home and a new global audience. GrantCraft is now a project of The Foundation Center and the European Foundation Centre, enabling it to serve a growing community of foundations and philanthropists worldwide. These two core institutions serving philanthropy will lead a new phase in the development of GrantCraft to help grant makers keep pace with the demands of an evolving global landscape
