Fundraising for Participatory Grantmaking

June 23 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm BST


How do we approach fundraising in Participatory Grantmaking?

Good participatory grantmaking starts with good income streams, or does it? Does it matter where the money for participatory grantmaking comes from, or is the most important thing that it’s happening? Why do different tensions arise when fundraising for PGM? And when all that is sorted, what (if any) is the role for donors in participatory grantmaking?

Join us on June 23rd to hear how 3 different organisations are trying to answer these questions.

Our speakers are:
