The Human Rights Funders Network, Peace and Security Funders Group, and Philanthropy NY invite you to a discussion on the value of funding local/grassroots organizations, obstacles foundations face, and recommendations for how to overcome them. Two of our members – American Jewish World Service and Peace Direct – will kick off the conversation with brief reflections on the recent report Supporting Local Organizations: Challenges and Opportunities for U.S. Foundations and their own experiences with locally-led grantmaking. We’ll reserve a vast majority of the time for information-sharing and strategizing, so please come prepared to share!
Notes from the webinar, including additional resources, are available here.
