This paper explores how experienced grantmakers develop their craft—how they learn, deepen their skills, and become effective and creative grantmakers. The basic skills of grantmaking—how to review proposals, analyze the effectiveness of organizations, read financial statements, and structure evaluations—are reasonably well documented and taught in a variety of venues and formats. Far less is known about how the basic skills of grantmaking coalesce into a craft, how grantmakers develop the capacity to do high-quality, effective grantmaking and to make a contribution to their substantive fields and to the field of philanthropy.
