Over the last few years, there has been an increase in conversation and practice of Trust Based Philanthropy—especially by funders. But what is it and what does it look like for nonprofits in Maine? And could Trust Based Philanthropy be part of a pathway to collective liberation?

Join Maine Philanthropy Center and Nicole Mokeme from Rise and Shine Youth Retreat as we investigate these questions. Nicole Mokeme will start our time together with a playshop on Collective Liberation and Leadership Super Powers. This playshop will start with a grounding exercise called a Moment of Silence and then we’ll work together to envision what collective liberation could look like in Maine. We’ll also reveal our individual leadership powers through illustration and storytelling. After we have a clear vision of what collective liberation looks like in Maine, we will visit the values of Trust Based Philanthropy and create a collaborative visual representation of what Maine nonprofits want these values to look like in action. This representation will then be shared with our funder members after the session.

This session has been especially designed for our nonprofit members only.
