Posted on October 5, 2020 by Trust-Based Philanthropy Project
The Trust-Based Philanthropy Project is a five-year, peer-to-peer funder initiative to address the inherent power imbalances between foundations and nonprofits. We invite foundations to examine their grantmaking values and practices through a trust-based lens, including proactively working to cede power and control toward a more equitable nonprofit-funder ecosystem. We work with foundations to create a philanthropic ecosystem that is trust-based. We build and curate the tools and resources to engage grantmakers around ways to embody this approach, and why it matters.
