Demystifying Trust-Based Philanthropy Session #5: What Does Evaluation Look Like in a Trust-Based Context?

Wednesday, July 12, 2023, 3:00 - 5:00 PM

Join Maryland Philanthropy Network and the Trust-Based Philanthropy Project for a 6-part webinar series focused on addressing common questions, clarifying misconceptions, and exploring ways to overcome obstacles in implementing trust-based philanthropy.

Trust-based philanthropy is a philosophy and approach rooted in values of relationship-building, mutual learning, and systemic equity – with a vision of advancing a healthier and more impactful nonprofit sector.

In Session #5, we'll unpack these important nuances and will highlight examples of how grantmakers are relying on rigor and continuous learning to understand impact. Participants can expect to gain a clear understanding of trust-based philanthropy’s three-pronged approach to learning and evaluation, as well as concrete tools they can use to implement in their own work.

Our speakers will be: Brenda Solorzano, Headwaters Foundation; Sarah Walczyk, Satterberg Foundation; and Shari Turitz, American Jewish World Service.

There will also be a dedicated space for small-group peer dialogue with other MPN members about ways to implement these practices into your grantmaking.


Please note your affiliation with Maryland Philanthropy Network on the registration form.

Who should attend: Anyone in a grantmaking role that is curious about understanding the nuances of trust-based philanthropy and how it applies to your work. This series will be ideal for those who have some baseline familiarity with trust-based philanthropy and have questions about how it manifests in practice.
