This session highlights findings from research the Foundation Center conducted to prepare its GrantCraft guide (released in October 2018) on participatory grantmaking. Explore the “why” and the “how” of participatory grantmaking, from its benefits and its challenges to its mechanics for recruiting community members, reviewing applications, and making decisions. Hear about the practical, real-world experience of two foundations that have been using this approach for years. A cross-section of presenters will offer both a field-wide view and specific anecdotes from within PEAK Grantmaking member foundations.
Participants will learn about:
Presenter: Jen Bokoff, Director of Stakeholder Engagement, Foundation Center, Candid., and Arlene Wilson-Grant, Grants Manager, Disability Rights Fund and Disability Rights Advocacy Fund
