Aims and activities
Aims and questions
Participatory grantmaking has been practiced for many years and is increasingly being explored, promoted, and strategically used by foundations and collaboratives around the world.
While there is a growing body of literature and tools to help people wherever they are in their participatory journeys, there is also an interest in learning from others, sharing experiences and growing the practice together.
The Participatory Grantmakers community of practice aims to be this missing space for practitioners to access knowledge and connect with one another.
Its work falls into three areas, with a programme of regular events that cover these topics:
- Peer support – how to overcome common challenges
- Deeper Dive – learning and best practice through case study and discussions into a topic
- Advocacy – strategizing how to build the field and mainstreaming participatory grantmaking
How to get involved
Membership of the group is evolving. Currently it is mainly people who are either doing Participatory Grantmaking (or have a strong likelihood of doing so in the near future) or who are researching Participatory Grantmaking. The group is open to new members who meet these criteria. Sign up here to join.
