DAY 2 CONCURRENT SESSION | Trust-Based Philanthropy in 4D: Values, Cultures, Leadership, Practice

The potential of trust-based philanthropy goes beyond unrestricted grants and streamlined paperwork. Trust-based philanthropy can show us the way toward co-creating a sector in which community and nonprofit leaders are valued, supported, and trusted. For this vision to become the norm in philanthropy, funders must center trust in every dimension of our work, both internally and externally. This begins with acknowledging and addressing issues of power and equity in all aspects of our organizations. We cannot truly extend trust and power-consciousness in our grantmaking practice unless we holistically commit to it across our values, cultures, and leadership. In this session, we will examine how to embed trust in each of these four dimensions — values, cultures, leadership, and practice — and hear directly from funder-practitioners who embody trust in 4D to advance individual, institutional, and sector-wide transformation.
