This season's must-have window accessory

It’s publication day!

Our book, Modern Grantmaking: A Guide for Funders Who Believe Better Is Possible, is out today.
If you’ve already pre-ordered a copy, thank you so much! Both paperback and hardback pre-orders were posted last week, and we know that some have already arrived. Amazon should also have zipped eBook pre-orders straight to your Kindle, if you went that route.
For anyone who’d like to purchase a copy at this point, you can choose from a hardback copy via our website or a paperback or eBook copy via Amazon.


What do people think of Modern Grantmaking?

‘What an absolute triumph of a book! Reading it has given me the bandwidth I needed to unlock a way forward on things I have been grappling with at my foundation.’
— Sufina Ahmad MBE, Director, John Ellerman Foundation

‘This is the book I wish I had when I started grantmaking.’

‘In Modern Grantmaking, Gemma Bull and Tom Steinberg lay out a compelling case for change in grantmaking practices and provide a timely guide for how grantmakers can rethink their work.’

How you can help if you want Modern Grantmaking to make an impact


Today being publication day there's really three key things you can do to help:

1 - Tell other people that the book is out, and that copies are shipping today.

2 - Send emails, write Tweets and post on LinkedIn, especially if you've actually got hold of a copy and you find it interesting or useful. If you can use #ModernGrantmaking that will help us to keep track!

3 - Consider discussing it in a book club or workshop with other grantmakers or nonprofit colleagues, as is already starting here! There's no lack of ideas that might lead to some lively debates...

All the best,

Gemma and Tom
