Place-based Philanthropy: How funders are accelerating equitable Impact
Wednesday, November 17
10 - 11am PT / 1 - 2pm ET

How can funders lean into more effective and equitable ways of giving? Earlier this year, a diverse group of place-based funders came together to dig into that challenge (and more) with a shared commitment to rebuild with equity and a desire to learn alongside one another.

We invite you to join this conversation with the funders, who discussed questions including:

  • How do we continue to interrogate our personal and institutional mindsets and practices?
  • How do we authentically engage communities—especially those of Black, Indigenous, and people of color (BIPOC), who have been structurally held back from progress—so they can shape our thinking and strategies?
  • How do we help build more power in BIPOC communities?
  • How do we more effectively collaborate with, and influence, other key stakeholders in our region, including our own donors, to advance community priorities?
  • How do we partner with public leaders and also push them further to address the root causes—not just the symptoms—of seemingly intractable social challenges?

Presented by the Bridgespan team who initiated and facilitated these discussions (and co-authored the recent field report, “Race and Place-based Philanthropy: Learnings from Funders Focused on Equitable Impact“), and featuring several place-based funders, we invite you to listen, learn, share, and reflect on some promising approaches to equitable philanthropy.
