Have you ever wondered what would happen if you turned grantees into grantors? What would happen if you empowered your grantees to allocate funding to their peers through a gifting model?
RSF Social Finance held the first Shared Gifting convening in the Bay Area with local San Francisco Food and Agricultural nonprofits to ask the question: how can gift money be used to foster community and collaboration? Join us for a lunch discussion to find out what they learned from this experience and explore how foundations can leverage funding to build grantee communities and increase impact.
