Day 2 Concurrent Session - Blueprint for a Better Safety Net: Participatory Grantmaking in Action

Join us as we discuss a participatory planning effort to redesign the social safety net in order to better weather the COVID-19 pandemic and address deeply rooted racial and social inequities. In this session, HealthSpark Foundation staff, a nonprofit participant, and a community partner will discuss their experiences in this community-driven process, share lessons learned from building collective vision during this momentous time in history, and outline key actions their organization will be taking as a result of this work. From this timely example, participants can expect to understand how participatory grantmaking can function, how a local funder is using this process to direct its own grantmaking and philanthropic activities, and how partners from across sectors can align actions and vision towards systemic change.
