Power and Light: Enlightened Approaches for Accountable and Equitable Grantmaking

Organization Members Only

Don’t let your processes undermine your foundation’s ability to serve the public good. In our current climate of crisis, there are multiple calls for philanthropy to use its power to improve efficiency, equity, and transparency with grantee partners. In this timely session, presenters share approaches used by funders to be more accountable and inclusive, while righting the power balance in their relationships with grantees, applicants, and community stakeholders. Featuring case studies from Candid’s GlassPockets and GrantCraft platforms, and insight from a new report issued by RespectAbility, speakers highlight pain points in the field and the funders working to overcome them through a commitment to transparency, trust, and inclusion.
