Like many established institutions today, foundations are subject to a heightened demand for greater transparency and accountability. Participatory grantmaking can be a vital practice for building trust and enhancing relationships between organized philanthropy and the communities they seek to serve. PACE, GrantCraft, and Philanthropy New York are hosting this webinar to help funders better understand participatory grantmaking, by providing resources, hearing from experts on the topic, and highlighting examples that illuminate the benefits and challenges of this approach.
We’ll hear from practitioners who have practiced participatory grantmaking at the local and national levels.
- What participatory grantmaking is and the different ways it is employed
- Examples of participatory grantmaking to show what it can look like in practice
- The impact of participatory grantmaking through first-hand stories
- Benefits and challenges of this approach so that funders might consider if/how it could complement their goals or strategies
Participants will be invited to share their own experiences with participatory grantmaking and ask the speakers and fellow participants questions on this practice. Recommended advanced readings for this discussion include:
- Has the Time Come for Participatory Grantmaking?
- Participatory Grantmaking: Power to the People
- Why Every Funder Should Consider Participatory Grantmaking
- Deciding Together: Shifting Power and Resources Through Participatory Grantmaking
- Jen Bokoff, Director of Stakeholder Engagement, Foundation Center
