Setting Up and Managing Emergency Grants
in Times of Crisis
Presented by Caitlin Stainken, Director of New Business, Submittable; Keriann Strickland, Director of Product Marketing, Submittable

The recent COVID-19 pandemic and social justice movement have reminded us that philanthropy can’t always wait—even for a few weeks—and that while the grantmaking process is often long and thorough for a reason, sometimes we have to expedite the process in order to do what grants do best: help connect resources to the people who need them most.

At Submittable, we have the unique opportunity to watch thousands of grantmakers go about their business each day. In recent months, we've seen how foundations and organizations have stepped up quickly, creatively, and with great resolve and compassion to mainline assistance to groups who can use it most. We'll share what we've learned from our clients about how to set up and manage emergency grants with maximum efficiency, for maximum impact.

Learning Objectives:

  • Nine strategies for managing an emergency grant

  • Examples of organizations implementing these strategies and how they're doing it

  • How to keep long-term goals and analysis in sight even in emergency and what your "normal" process might learn from emergency grants
