This briefing paper from TCC Group is intended to assist grantmakers designing new grants programs, as well as those rethinking existing programs as they develop a focused funding strategy. The paper provides a logical process to help guide the grantmaker through the many questions raised when designing grant programs. Not suggesting the existence of a single, correct way to develop programs, the paper does provide a series of steps and covers critical questions.
