Non-monetary Grantmaking and Assistance

Non-monetary grantmaking traditionally includes in-kind grants of land, equipment, or free space.

Grants of succession planning, executive coaching, and program evaluation are just a few examples. Listen to your peers share experiences in the what, why, and how of non-monetary grantmaking.
