Grantmaking Associations


The Christensen Fund is an active member of the US and global philanthropic communities, and each year we support key associations of grantmakers and organizations which shape the ability of existing and emerging philanthropies to learn from each other, collaborate, explore growing themes such as international, Indigenous and biocultural work, and improve grantmaking practices. Christensen staff also serve on the Boards and committees of some of these entities, as well as speaking (with our grantees where possible) at philanthropic events.

Here is a list of grantmaking associations that we currently support, either through membership dues or grants:
