Participatory grantmaking helps to shift decision-making power to the communities most affected by pressing social, economic, and environmental challenges. The impacts of the pandemic, the rise of the Black Lives Matter movement, and the greater push for Truth and Reconciliation have heightened the need to challenge common funding practices and shift resources and power to communities.
Join Zari, Marina, Jessica, Karenveer and Myriam in a conversation about engaging individuals with lived experiences in informing funding priorities and making grantmaking decisions. They will share early insights and learnings from this pilot project and why they believe this model can transform relationships between communities and funders.
