Breakout | No Registration? No Problem! Taking Risks with International Grantmaking

Invitations to the keynotes and learning sessions are limited to PEAK’s Organization Members along with PEAK2020 registrants who generously supported us by forgoing registration refunds.


In an era of increasingly-closing civic space, human rights and grassroots funders are finding that they need to incorporate greater flexibility and risk taking in their grantmaking. This session will explore recommendations for funding diverse types of organizations in high-risk climates around the globe, from sending money during crises to managing complex compliance requirements in challenging environments. Presenters will demonstrate what trust-based philanthropy looks like from a grants manager’s perspective.
