Living the Values

GrantBook believes it important that we live the values we promote. Specifically, investing in right-sized digital strategy that allows us to get the job done. Take a moment to read through some of the key principles that drive our work. When you are preparing an application, please include a few thoughts, comments, and critiques.

Internally:

Live the values as a team…

Trusted and Respected

Ensure that every team member trusts that when they attempt to do their work, their colleagues have set them up for success: Is there a better way for me to share?

Meaningful

We are mindful of what information we are creating and how/where it is being stored. So when a colleague asks a question, you focus on the work that matters. Strip away all the ‘noise’.

Profitable

The more efficiently we can prepare a proposal, properly budget staff time/resources and execute with excellence will determine if we can reach our Big Hairy Audacious Goal.

Externally:

Win confidence of those we work with…

Trusted and Respected

The more examples we have to share with clients on how we ‘Pick the Right Tool’, the more we can earn their trust that the promise of working digitally actually saves time.

Meaningful

The better we get at making sure we are on collecting, sharing and curating the right types of information, the more focused on delivering products and services clients are willing to pay for.

Profitable

As GrantBook applies design principles on our growing large-data sets, we will earn more business because our work is part  art and part science.

Sector-Wide

Deliver on our promise…

Trusted and Respected

As an evidence-driven, design oriented shop, GrantBook we remain at the forefront of 21st century philanthropy.

Meaningful

As we continue to Unlearn/Retool + Experiment/Use Variance to Improve, GrantBook is known to be part of the solution, not problem.

Profitable

The more clients we engage the more opportunity we have to deliver on our sector-wide goal of improving net-value.
