Addressing power and building equity in philanthropy

Too often, foundations get in the way of nonprofits doing the work they know best. This can slow down progress, perpetuate inequities, and obstruct nonprofit growth and innovation.  Trust-based philanthropy reimagines that dynamic, building a world in which funders authentically partner with grantees in a spirit of service. 

Putting the principles of trust-based philanthropy into practice we hope to create authentic relationships built on trust with our grantee partners. We believe our commitment to shared power will produce stronger relationships and ultimately change the culture of philanthropy.  Change is a slow, long-term process but we are committed and glad our grantee partners are too.
