Genius grants for nonprofits- what a trend this could be!

15 Mar

I recently learned that the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, instigator of what’s popularly known as the unrestricted “genius grants” for individuals, also has a genius award for nonprofits! The program is described here in my most recent article for the Nonprofit Quarterly Newswire.  This type of flexible investment in high performing organizations vs. discrete programs is rare, but it would be great to see it expand.
