Self-accountability for grant funding

Nature:
Historically, those responsible for grant funding have been accountable only to their own private goals, understandings and predilections resulting in no effective accountability to actual social needs. This self-accountability often leads to grant giving on the basis of quantifiable returns. Complicated systems for requesting funds and arbitrary evaluation procedures different for each grantor, restrict equitable fund granting. Another complication occurs through limitations imposed by wills and trust fund legalities.
