Programs and Events Specialist

PEAK Grantmaking is a vibrant, member-led community of more than 7,000 professionals who specialize in grants management for funding organizations. We elevate the expertise of grants management professionals and foster their collaboration to strengthen the practice of grantmaking. We enable philanthropy to achieve its full potential to fuel change for good. We are the only organization dedicated solely to advancing the “how” of grantmaking.

PEAK improves how grants get made by building experts in grants management and equipping them with the most effective practices to implement in their grantmaking organizations. When grantmaking practices are at their “peak,” more resources are focused on mission over administration for both grantmakers and grantseekers, leading to greater impact for the causes and communities served.

PEAK’s Programs Team works to advance the Principles for Peak Grantmaking and ensure that the organization’s programming and resources encourage funders to adopt improved grantmaking practices and advocate for sector transformation. The Programs Team assures the strategy and execution of the organization’s events and sector convenings to elevate effective, efficient, and equitable philanthropic practices. 


The Programs and Events Specialist plays a vital role in ensuring that PEAK’s mission and values of transforming philanthropy in operationalizing equity-centered, values-driven grantmaking practices are clearly expressed to our audiences, stakeholders, and community members. As PEAK’s online member community grows, the Programs and Events Specialist supports the management and expansion of PEAK’s menu of programming, content, and events. The Programs and Events Specialist supports the planning and execution of several events throughout the year that will nurture an emergent learning network among PEAK members, including the PEAK annual convening, chapter events, and other external engagements. The Programs and Events Specialist collaborates with staff across the organization to effectively build and maintain educational resources that meet member needs and deliver inspiring thought leadership through PEAK’s programs and events.
