Grantmaking Accountability Template: The California Endownment Case Study

Grantmaking Accountability Template: The California Endownment Case Study

Consumers Union conducted this Case Study with the aid of The California Endowment (TCE) to develop and test the Grantmaking Accountability Template (the “Template”)–a tool we developed for categorizing a foundation’s grantmaking to provide an objective basis on which communities and foundations can engage in conversation about meeting community needs. For more on the generic Template, see “Advancing Accountability: A Tool for Transparent Foundation Grantmaking” at www.consumersunion.org. We selected TCE for this pilot because it is the largest conversion foundation1 in the country and because, from its inception, it has had an articulated commitment to community accountability. Also, its leadership enthusiastically agreed to participate in this endeavor.
