How to Manage My Current Grant | Long Island Community Foundation

A key component of our grant making program is understanding the effectiveness of the initiatives our grants help to fund. Our goal is to inform and improve our decision-making and, where appropriate, share this learning with future grantees. Ultimately, we collect best practices and lessons learned to better inform our own grant making, and we thank all of our grantees for helping us with this process.
