Grantmaker of the Year Award
Share |

Do you know a government agency, private foundation, or community grantor that is doing outstanding things for your community and/or in the grants profession? Consider nominating them for the Grantmaker of the Year Award!


  • Nominate Federal, state, and local agencies in the Public Category
  • Family, community and corporate foundations qualify for nominations under the Private Category

Formerly known as the GPA Pioneer Award, the Grantmaker of the Year Award recognizes public and private funders that have improved the way grant professionals do their work and acknowledges outstanding contributions to the field of grantsmanship. Agencies profiled in the top-scoring applications this year will also participate in an "virtual site visit" from review committee members.

The awards will be presented at the GPA Annual Conference in Denver, Colorado in November 2020.

Nominations are open to members and non-members. 

Nominations are now closed. GPA will announce the private and public recipients in late August.
