This summer, Funders Committee for Civic Participation (FCCP) is excited to introduce the Summer Equity + Power Sharing Series, which will explore different integrations of racial equity, building power throughout democratic ecosystems, and improving philanthropy’s corresponding role in as much. They will examine changes in practices after the 2016 elections, stand alone vs. integrated approaches to this work, and how to change grantmaking strategies for the better.
The July 8 discussion will interrogate how evaluation frameworks can perpetuate or improve power dynamics between grantees and grantmakers, and our August 5 program will focus on a case study, such as the intended and unintended consequences that funders can have on movement building.
This series is offered free of charge thanks to FCCP members’ financial support. It is open to funders and philanthropic advisors only.
