Global Community of Practice on Participatory Grantmaking: Peer Support Session

This event is an opportunity for those working to establish or test participatory grant making approaches in their funding decisions, strategy development, or commissioning decisions to come together and learn more about the approaches and share learnings about what works. There will also be an opportunity to network, share, and troubleshoot with others in the community.


Please note that we host the same meeting twice — you can choose either the #TuesdayClub (first Tuesday of the month 8-9:30am UK time) or the #ThursdayClub (first Thursday of every month 5-6:30pm UK time). Please choose whichever one works for you 🙂

Part of today’s session will be dedicated to introducing a participatory grantmaking audit: Katy Love and Diana Samarasan have been developing a tool to support funders to incorporate more participation into their approaches. This is the first phase of an effort to build out the concept of a participatory grantmaking audit. Over the last few months they have interviewed a number of people with expertise on audits and/or change in philanthropy in order to learn from good practice. In addition they have conducted desk research on audit tools and methodologies. Findings from their interviews and desk research have informed the first draft of the tool, which outlines the key functional areas in a foundation along a spectrum of participatory practices. Katy and Diana will share an update about the status of the tool’s development.
