Gleaning Lessons about Participatory Grantmaking
For several years, Maryland Philanthropy Network has been sharing information about participatory grantmaking efforts, like B’More Invested, the inFusion Community Grants Program, and the Youth-led Participatory Grantmaking.
Now, all Maryland Philanthropy Network members are invited to join representatives from B’more Invested, InFusion Community Grants, Youth as Resources, and other participatory grantmakers for an engaging discussion about what they are learning, especially about decision-making structures, coaching, compensation, and the power of allocating resources that directly impact their neighbors and peers. We’ll also discuss how the Ground Root Collective is collaborating on efforts to strengthen the social sector by supporting applicants and grantees before, during, and after grant cycles.
If you are curious about or have joined in participatory grantmaking, this is time to dig in and explore this practice and the implications of being more participatory!
If local COVID-19 transmission rates allow, we will offer an in-person option for programming.
This program is for Maryland Philanthropy Network members and invited guests only.
