How can funders make their grantmaking more transparent and inclusive while tackling the unequal power dynamic in philanthropy?
To delve into the “how” of this democratic approach, in late August NCRP co-hosted Pass the Reins: Shifting Decision-Making Power in Philanthropy with the Indie Philanthropy Initiative, Grassroots Grantmakers and GrantCraft, a service of Foundation Center.
In the discussion, the speakers shared lessons, benefits and outcomes from their approaches to community-led grantmaking. They emphasized the importance of active recruitment, trust-building, compensation, language access, evaluation and a commitment to difficult conversations.
The audience was also invited to weigh in on what’s needed to activate and expand participatory grantmaking in the sector.
