Giving Up Grantmaking Power: Lessons Learned From 10 Years of Shared Gifting

In this webinar, RSF staff members Kelley Buhles and Ellie Lanphier get together with Noelle Harden of University of Minnesota Extension to explore trends related to participatory grantmaking and take a deep dive into how RSF has been practicing participatory grantmaking through its Shared Gifting program—which gives full decision-making authority of grant funds to community leaders. The panel explores the benefits and challenges of implementing a participatory grantmaking process, as well as lessons learned from 10 years of using the Shared Gifting model.
