No Registration? No Problem! Taking Risks with International Grantmaking

Organization Members Only

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 explores 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 demonstrate what trust-based philanthropy looks like from a grants manager’s perspective.
