Community Conversation | Reimagining Grantmaking
The ways in which philanthropy has interpreted the concepts of risk, trust, and equity continue to drive the processes and practices that dictate what is required in order to get money to grantees and communities. Yet, as grantmakers shift to rapid-response funding in the global pandemic and the outcry for racial justice, these processes and practices have been called into question.
In the fall edition of the PEAK Grantmaking Journal, we highlight all the ways in which the conventional wisdom of “how to make grants” is being upended – and the questions being raised about why, and how, philanthropy can change its notions of what risk, trust, and equity mean in order to meet the challenges of this moment, and evolve to realize its full potential.
Review this open forum around how grants management professionals are reimagining grantmaking to meet the moment, and planning long-term for the future. We reflect back on 2020, the changes you made, and the changes you’d like to keep moving forward –- and how.
