What Does Grantee Accountability Look Like in Trust-Based Philanthropy?
This is the fourth session of a 6-part webinar series on Demystifying Trust-Based Philanthropy. For more information about this series, click here.
There is a misperception that trust-based philanthropy’s shift away from project-specific grants and lengthy written reports will inherently diminish any sense of accountability from grant recipients. In reality, trust-based philanthropy focuses on creating conditions for mutual accountability between funders and nonprofits, which actually allows for a deeper sense of honesty and transparency than in a traditional context.
This session will explore some of the underlying questions and concerns around accountability in philanthropy, and will offer insights from funders who have benefited from embracing trust-based philanthropy with a lens of mutual accountability. Participants will gain strategies for cultivating a two-way street of accountability in an equitable, trust-based way.
