​​Participatory grantmaking is a powerful movement in philanthropy: when donors shift power over grant decisions to people with lived experience of the problem.

Though the idea is as old as charity, the movement has been growing rapidly in the past few years, as more funders are giving voice to people who don’t usually get a say in decisions.

What we’ll cover: We’ll look at participatory grantmaking (and participatory philanthropy more broadly) from all angles, always making sure to ask the tough questions about what works, what’s hard and what’s most important.
