About this event
Join The Trust-Based Philanthropy Project, Philanthropy Northwest and the Iowa Council of Foundations for a two-part series designed for community foundations that are actively working to embrace trust-based philanthropy. This series will explore how trust-based philanthropy plays out in the unique context of community foundations working at the intersection of grantmaking, fund development, donor relations and community leadership.
In our first session, “Operationalizing Trust-Based Philanthropy in Your Grantmaking,” you will explore strategies and opportunities for incrementally building trust-based practices and deepening community relationships in your grantmaking. The objectives of this session are to:
- Connect community foundations to share how to implement trust-based practices
- Inspire community foundation staff by sharing case studies that provide actionable ideas for putting trust-based values into practice
- Provide talking points that can help make the case for trust-based philanthropy with donors, DAF-holders and board members
Both sessions will feature perspectives from community foundation practitioners who have made strides along the trust-based journey – in their grantmaking, in their internal cultures and structures, as well as in their board and donor relations. Our second session on July 13 will focus on how to engage donors and DAF holders in the trust-based journey. Register for session two here.
Who Should Attend?
This series is open to all staff, board members and affiliate contractors of community foundations, especially those who are leading grantmaking and donor relations. We highly encourage multiple staff to attend, since the ability of community foundations to lead on trust-based philanthropy requires the active investment of multiple departments.
