New Web Resource Focuses on Social Innovation

Grantmakers for Effective Organizations (GEO) has now launched a new online resource, Scaling What Works, as part of a multi-year initiative to expand the number of grantmakers and public sector funders that are working together to support high-performing nonprofits. Scaling What Works will provide information and resources about grantmaking practices that are supporting social impact.  The website will also include important information about organizations receiving Social Innovation Fund grants and the grantmakers that are supporting them. Many GEO-member grantmakers are supporting the Social Innovation Fund through match dollars and encouraging their current grantees to apply for Social Innovation Fund subgrants. Knowing who these key funders are will be important for any community interested in opportunities to scale social impact locally.
