Grantmaking is a critical part of a comprehensive philanthropic strategy — an opportunity to build authentic relationships with high impact organizations and expand their capacity to serve the community. How grants are made and managed is as important as their intended results.
Hirsch Philanthropy Partners draws on decades of experience working with philanthropists to implement effective and cohesive grant strategies. Our diverse strengths include developing and executing comprehensive grant portfolios, facilitating significant giving to stand out institutions, and leading complex grant initiatives that involve multiple partners.
We manage the administrative processes, due diligence, financial analysis, measurement, and ongoing oversight that grants require, directing more than $115M annually with responsiveness and precision. We build trust-based relationships with organizations and use evaluation data to inform future recommendations. Whether you are just getting started or have extensive grant portfolios, we handle the details and big picture, allowing you to engage with the aspects of philanthropy that bring you meaning and joy.
How We Help
Our internal systems ensure the complete grantmaking cycle is managed efficiently from solicitation to review, due diligence to compliance, and financial analysis to reporting. We use an industry gold standard database to track grant histories, grant distribution and grantee deliverables. We also work with you to reconcile investments with your family office, donor-advised fund, or financial institution.
Our team builds close relationships with the dedicated nonprofit leaders and organizations you fund. We serve as a trusted point of contact to discuss the successes and challenges of their work.
Measurement shows how your philanthropy makes a difference over time. We collect and analyze data about both the grantmaking process and specific grant outcomes to assess effectiveness, track trends, and provide a feedback loop for philanthropists and community partners.
