All funders interested in community development, workforce development, affordable housing and the creative arts are welcome to attend this briefing. Part presentation, part workshop, this briefing will lift up a new model for community growth; one that increases the impact for low- and moderate-income families while bringing vital services back into historically marginalized neighborhoods.
Join this interactive, open presentation about the terms, ideas, and findings behind “intersectional” approaches that reconnect race, class, and gender to improve life outcomes for at-risk youth. Toolkits and leave-behinds provided.
This workshop will help participants get specific about the types of grantmaking practices that support – or hinder – equity. During this session, we’ll work through a design-thinking exercise to help us answer the question: “If we were to design the grantmaking process to support grantseekers and grantees and contribute to a more just and equitable world, what would that look like?” If you are a grantmaker that has embraced the values of diversity, equity, and inclusion, this workshop is for you.
Advancing racial equity and supporting marginalized communities require intentional power shifting and the redistribution of wealth. Join the Rising Leaders for a brown bag discussion about strategies Maryland funders can use to promote systems of liberation in our communities.

Maryland Philanthropy Network members are invited to learn what their peers are doing (and why and how!) around requesting, collecting and reporting data from grantees. We’ll discuss how funders can drive values of equity and inclusion throughout the application process - including what we require from an organization as we make funding decisions. We’ll also discuss how well philanthropy is looking at ourselves.
