Webinar – A Democratic Philanthropy: A Different Perspective on Funding
December 4, 2013 ￼
Based on an article from the Fall 2013 issue of Responsive Philanthropy, the quarterly journal of the National Committee for Responsive Philanthropy (NCRP), titled A Democratic Charity: A Different Perspective on Funding, co-authors Christine Reeves and Regina McGraw led this webinar on how funders can be more democratic in their social change work. Discussions centered on both (1) the article’s content and (2) the processes of an EPIP member co-authoring an article with a colleague and philanthropic leader. Participants gained an understanding of diversified funding strategies, such as advocacy and community organizing. Christine and Regina also discussed 10 concerns funders have about democratic philanthropy, and provided participants with a number of ideas for next steps. Speakers included: Christine Reeves, Senior Field Associate, National Committee for Responsive Philanthropy and Regina McGraw, Executive Director, Wieboldt Foundation.
