Presented by Trust Based Philanthropy Project and Orange County Grantmakers

Rooted in the values of advancing equity, shifting power, and building relationships, trust-based philanthropy has gained traction as an alternative to the traditional funder-driven, compliance-oriented approach to philanthropy. While many in philanthropy are embracing a trust-based ethos and seek to shift attitudes and practices within their organizations, an investment of time and energy is needed to make these changes and therefore leadership buy-in is critical.

The first of this two-part webinar series hosted in partnership by OCG and the Trust Based Philanthropy Project will address how to champion a trust-based approach within your organization and will unpack the rationale for adopting trust-based philanthropy from three standpoints: how it benefits the funder; how it benefits nonprofit partners; and how it furthers philanthropy’s collective values and goals.

Attendees will take away resources, examples, and talking points to make the case to your own leadership or board, as well as specific next actions you can pursue to move your organization forward on its trust-based journey.
