If you look at nonprofit financials every day or only a few times a year, this workshop is for you. Philanthropic due diligence should include examination of a nonprofit organization's financial health. Not only does the funder gain a risk perspective, but there is an opportunity to help the organization understand its own path to sustainability and fulfilling its mission.
Join Maryland Philanthropy Network and the Trust-Based Philanthropy Project as we explore questions about changes funders are making and how to leverage this moment to reexamine philanthropic practices. After presenting a general overview of the interrelated principles of trust-based philanthropy, we'll engage in a discussion about how trust-based practice benefits whole systems — enabling both funders and nonprofits to do our work with more ease, authenticity, and joy.
Out of an abundance of caution, we have decided to postpone this program. We apologize for any inconvenience.

On November 13, Maryland Philanthropy Network convened more than 100 community leaders for deep conversation with Edgar Villanueva author of Decolonizing Wealth: Indigenous Wisdom to Heal Divides and Restore Balance. To continue this discussion, please join us for a peer conversation about the book, Decolonizing Wealth and reflect on Mr. Villanueva’s remarks. For this conversation, we’ll mostly focus on Part One of the book, “Where it Hurts” and the themes outlined within.
Through a presentation and discussion with Stuart Clarke, Edgar Villanueva will outline his provocative analysis of the dysfunctional colonial dynamics at play in philanthropy and finance and offer a prescription for restoring balance and healing our divides.
As the concept of social equity becomes a more visible focus in our policies and practices, it is critical to understand the ways inequities manifest in the environmental sector.
