"Place-based grantmaking" has become a popular term in philanthropic circles over the last several years. As described by the Neighborhood Funders Group, place-based grantmaking illustrates a shift in strategy from a traditional issue- or problem-based philanthropic approach to one focused on improving specific neighborhoods or communities. 

Join GWP as we hear from four local grantmaking leaders whose organizations are in different stages of implementing a place-based grantmaking strategy.  They’ll each describe how and why they developed a place-based grantmaking strategy, what they hope to accomplish, and what they've learned so far from their approach to grantmaking in place.
