We designed this publication for the annual Taking Measure event hosted by Foundation Center, the Georgia Center for Nonprofits, and the Georgia Grantmakers Alliance. The report presented data and key facts on Georgia grantmaking trends.
"Embarrassingly, I admit, I procrastinate on our scheduled calls. Mostly, I anticipate the challenges. Meredith is going to make me define something that I felt perfectly comfortable leaving unclear. Scott adds a step in the process that’s going to get us honest feedback (can I handle really honest feedback?...). They both go silent when I express a “good design idea” (as I hear myself aloud, it sounded better in my head). Yes, this is what it’s like working with a real design partner. It’s like the first five miles of a run: you’re not in control. But then you hit that breakpoint–that fifth mile. You really want to hit that place with Scott and Meredith. After that point magic takes over. The communication challenges no longer dictate the outcome. Things are clear. You can run."
