Knight Foundation Brings Unprecedented Value to Smaller Grantees

Dan Schoenfeld, Director of Grants Administration at Knight, is not content to rest on his laurels. He had a nagging suspicion that he could figure out a way to make the foundation’s grantmaking processes even more efficient for a subset of his grantees.

  • 30 program staff
  • 2-step expedited grant process
  • 24- hour grant lifecycle
  • 184 grants totalling $16M in 1.5 years

“It’s literally two steps,” Schoenfeld said of the expedited grant process. “These grants can be done on a Monday morning and a check can be ready by Monday afternoon.”
