Event Description

We are very excited to announce that in two weeks' time, on July 13th, we'll be hosting a session on Participatory Grantmaking & Impact on Community Movement Building  - sharing out research from Ford-funded grants.

 In 2019, the Ford Foundation funded one of the first efforts to collect quantitative and qualitative data about participatory practices – including grantmaking – in philanthropy. Nine research projects, specifically, were supported (see HERE for an overview) to help better understand the value, challenges, and outcomes of participatory philanthropy and, ultimately, strengthen the infrastructure and evidence base behind it.

This session will look at how three organizations evaluated their use of participatory processes and decisions, specifically, whether and to what extent these contributed to strengthening the community organizing and movement building efforts of each organization, as well as their respective issues (LGBTQ+, racial, disability, and environmental justice).


Elizabeth Dale, Seattle University & Katie Carter, Pride Foundation

Melanie Kawano-Chiu, Disability Rights Fund
