The Solutions to Issues Exist in Those Affected Communities

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Foundation assets are held in the public trust, yet decisions about how foundations distribute these assets have historically been made behind closed doors and with little to no public input. What would happen if those closest to the issues your foundation supports were a part of the process of setting priorities and making funding decisions? This democratization of philanthropy poses a particular set of challenges and opportunities that could bring fresh perspectives to our overall philanthropic work.  This session will focus on how to open the doors and windows to the community that could revolutionize our work by centering community perspective and community members throughout your grantmaking work to accomplish a shared set of goals.
