Walking the Talk: Values-Based Grantmaking

Wednesday, May 9, 2018
9:00am - 12:00pm
Philanthropy Network Greater Philadelphia

Grantmaking practices are some of the most public (and sometime the only) expression of grantmakers’ values. Values include what grantmakers care about, how they sees the world, and their orientation toward grantseeker partners. Despite this, grantmaking practices are not always aligned grantmakers’ values. Learn how to bring a values-based approach to your grantmaking in a workshop.

Equity, Real Costs, and Impact: Deep-Dive Workshop (Part 2 of 2)

Tuesday, October 2, 2018
9:00am - 12:00pm
Philanthropy Network Greater Philadelphia

From grant applications to financial due diligence and grants management, grantmakers are looking to change how they work to be more responsive to the needs and financial realities of community-based organizations serving economically and socially disadvantaged communities. This engaging workshop will help grantmakers – even those who have been doing this work for some time – drive impact without exploiting the sweat equity of their grantees; gain a better understanding of what it really cost grantees to deliver on mission ; and reveal how grant funding can unintentionally undermine equity goals.
