Trust-Based Philanthropy is being embraced by a growing number of foundations as a way to alleviate power imbalances between funders and grantees while fostering more productive and informative relationships. Driven by the central philosophy that funders should approach grantee relationships as learning partnerships, a trust-based approach encourages multi-year unrestricted funding, streamlined reporting, and transparent and responsive communication.

Join Phil Li, President of the Robert Sterling Clark Foundation, as he shares more about the six principles of trust-based philanthropy, his journey to implement trust-based practices at his foundation, and the lessons he’s learning along the way. Participants will also have an opportunity to explore a particular area of practice that they hope to refine or build in an effort to build more productive and balanced funder-grantee relationships, and can expect to walk away with practical next steps to share with colleagues.

For GCRI funders only.
