GrantAdvisor is a new online informational service that crowdsources grantmaker information for nonprofits seeking funding throughout the U.S. Designed to encourage more productive philanthropy and facilitate open dialogue, GrantAdvisor allows grant applicants, grantees, and others to share their first-hand experiences working with funders through authentic, real-time reviews and comments.

Feedback is shared anonymously and, once a funder receives 5 reviews, the data on that funder will be posted publicly and funders will have the opportunity to respond to reviews. In addition to aggregating feedback on the grant application process, GrantAdvisor will provide a forum to post questions and share views on how funders influence their field. This allows funders to understand how they are perceived as leaders and influencers—not simply as grantmakers.

GrantAdvisor launches with California and Minnesota, with new locations and partnerships to be announced in 2018.

Bruce Sievers

GrantAdvisor is a brilliant combination of an advice source for grantseekers and a feedback loop to foundations, which has been a missing link in the modern history of philanthropy.
