Participation in Philanthropy: How will I know if I’m doing it?

Funders are increasingly interested in participatory practices to shift power to communities, even beyond grantmaking. But, what does that look like across the functional areas of a foundation, including governance, grantmaking, communications, monitoring, learning and evaluation, and more? Two longtime practitioners of participation in philanthropy, Diana Samarasan and Katy Love, have developed a self-assessment tool that can help funders see where they are and identify opportunities to expand participation by people with lived experience in their work. Join us to learn about this tool and how it can support you to know if you’re doing it!
