A Just Transition for Philanthropy: Regenerative relationships between grantees & funders
Start: Wednesday, May 22, 2019• 1:00 PM
End: Wednesday, May 22, 2019• 3:00 PM
If a Just Transition for philanthropy means shifting philanthropic practices away from extraction and towards regeneration, what do regenerative relationships look like within a funder/grantee power dynamic?
As a follow up to State of the Movement 2019 and the launch of Resonance: A Framework for Philanthropic Transformation, Justice Funders, Solidaire Network and Thousand Currents are excited to co-host a gathering of our Bay Area philanthropic & movement community to dig deeper into grantmaking practices that accelerate a Just Transition for philanthropy.
In a series of paired conversations between social justice leaders and funders, we’ll explore how foundations can recognize extractive practices, overcome power dynamics, and build trusting & authentic relationships that support community self-determination and honor community expertise.
