GrantAdvisor is designed to host a dynamic conversation about grantmaking, with active participation from funders, nonprofits, and community members.
We encourage funders to register with GrantAdvisor in order to receive automatic notices when reviews are posted about their organization and to be able to post responses when new reviews are submitted.
To respond to reviews, each funder can designate a Key Contact to register their foundation or giving program with GrantAdvisor using an email address that identifies the person as a foundation representative.
A funder profile needs at least 5 reviews before it becomes public. As these initial 5 reviews are received, GrantAdvisor will email the unpublished results to that funder’s Key Contact, providing the opportunity for the funder to write a response. After the first 5 reviews are posted online, subsequent reviews will be posted when received, and the Key Contact can post responses to these comments at any time.
Responses posted by the Key Contact will be attributed to the name of the organization (such as “Response from Johnson Foundation”) and not to the Key Contact’s personal email or title. Only posts submitted by the Key Contact or alternative contact will be posted under the funder’s name.
