Deciding Together: Shifting Power and Resources Through Participatory Grantmaking

Among the more than 146,000 foundations worldwide, a small but thriving number are using a participatory grantmaking approach. And that small sliver is growing. That’s not surprising, given a number of trends that are converging, both in philanthropy and culturally.

Deciding Together: Shifting Power and Resources Through Participatory Grantmaking looks at why and how funders are engaging in participatory grantmaking and shifting decision-making power to the very communities impacted by funding decisions. Through examples and insights from a diverse range of participatory grantmakers, the report explores the benefits, challenges, and models of participatory grantmaking.
