PEAK Grantmaking

Keynote | Building Equity for Native Communities Through Collaboration

Organization Members Only

At PEAK2019, keynote speaker Edgar Villanueva challenged us to recognize blind spots in philanthropy, and focus our efforts on centering Native peoples in all aspects of philanthropy. But how are foundations actually doing this, and how do grants management processes and data factor in? The panel examines how grants management processes and data can be used to make funding more accessible to, and focused on, Native communities. In addition to exploring the funding data tied to Native communities, panelists also discuss the transformative journeys of the Bush Foundation and the Calgary Foundation as they’ve pursued inclusivity through internal practice change.This session was sponsored by the Leona M. and Harry B. Helmsley Charitable Trust.
