At EPIP and YNPN, we want to leverage special pairings for social change.
Philosophically and at the National level, EPIP and YNPN have seen each other as partners for a long time. Both EPIP and YNPN members are social entrepreneurs dedicated to making the world a better place. And both groups know that innovation comes when nonprofit and foundation professionals bring their different perspectives to the table to problem solve.
We believe power dynamics are a major cause of differences between nonprofit and foundations professionals and we need to address these power dynamics between funders and grantees to ensure a thriving partnership. As powerful allies building a more just, equitable, and sustainable society, we must begin to work through these dynamics.
This video highlights the importance of recognizing power dynamics and working together to get past them.
