As funders increase their focus on supporting equity, inclusive economies and opportunity for all, we must remember is not just about what you fund but how you fund. By better understanding what it really costs your grantees to deliver on mission, grantmakers can better structure their grantmaking and leverage their resources to support a more just, equitable, and sustainable society.

Workshop Objectives

  • To understand how grant funding practices can unintentionally undermine equity goals
  • To learn key steps you can take to better support impact without exploiting the sweat equity of your grantees
  • To gain a better understanding of what it really cost grantees to deliver on mission

Light refreshments and snacks provided.
