Introduction to grant-making is a series of four publications from the Association of Charitable Foundations (ACF) designed to introduce you to the grant-making cycle. This publication, Developing decision making processes and tools, covers one stage of the grant-making cycle. Here we look at the different approaches to managing our application and decision making processes.
Once a foundation has agreed on a grant-making strategy and decided the kinds of work and organisations it wants to fund, it needs to consider the most effective and efficient way to deliver these aims. This guide outlines basic principles and structures which streamline this process.
