Do your grantmaking practices reflect your values? All grantmakers have values, whether they are stated explicitly or revealed implicitly through grantmaker practices, which inform and guide the foundation’s view of the world. PEAK Grantmaking’s research suggests that foundations, now more than ever, are thinking about how to identify their institutional values and embed these values into their grantmaking practices. Grantmakers have a unique opportunity to initiate and support these conversations, and encourage the growth and spread of values-based grantmaking.
In this workshop, PEAK Grantmaking will share what it’s learned through its research, workshops, and interviews on values-based grantmaking. Participants will be able to share their experiences with organizational values and link them to practices. They’ll also gain concrete skills to initiate conversations with colleagues and organizational leaders around aligning grantmaking practice with values.
- Lessons from grantmaking institutions that articulate their values and how to link their top 10 values to practices
- A set of tools (in persuasion, communication, consensus building, and advocacy) for grantmakers to advance conversations within their own organizations on values-based grantmaking, and a space to practice those conversations
- Grantmakers’ capacity to move organizations forward on their journey to articulating and “living” their values
- Melissa Sines, Effective Practices Program Manager, PEAK Grantmaking
