Tech, Trust-Based Philanthropy & Modern Grantmaking

Traditional philanthropic practices — often involving top-down decision making and a culture of compliance — have failed to advance nonprofits’ potential for impact and innovation. A more effective and impactful approach to giving is possible when funders and donors approach their grantee relationships with transparency, mutual learning, and operational efficiency. How do philanthropists put these into practice? Join us to hear about practical ways to start making meaningful changes from Gemma Bull, Co-Director of Modern Grantmaking, Shaady Salehi, Executive Director of the Trust-Based Philanthropy Project, and Steve Aponte, Vice President of Product & Strategy at Foundation Source.

In this session, we’ll cover:

  • Trust-Based Philanthropy values and practices
  • The Modern Grantmaking movement
  • Adding transparency to giving
  • Opening the giving dialogue more broadly
  • Leading from the middle
  • Tech innovation
  • How to take steps toward operationalizing trust-based practices
