Join us to pick up the discussion from our spring funder roundtable as we gather again to take a closer look at why and how funders are engaging in participatory grantmaking and shifting power and decision-making to the very communities impacted by funding decisions.

Together, we’ll explore examples and insights from a range of individuals employing participatory grantmaking practices, both locally and beyond. During this session, we will discuss different benefits, challenges, and models of participatory grantmaking.

  • Jenn Sloan, Social Change in Community Fellow, The Pittsburgh Foundation
