Funders can make their grantmaking more transparent and inclusive while tackling the unequal power dynamic in philanthropy.

With more and more conversations around equity taking place in the sector, community-led grantmaking has proven to be a powerful way to address inequity from within, and in the process, center community members who are most marginalized. Delve into the “how” of this democratic approach, in Pass the Reins: Shifting Decision-Making Power in Philanthropy with the Indie Philanthropy Initiative, Grassroots Grantmakers and GrantCraft, a service of Candid.
