Midwest Partnership Series | Participatory Grantmaking: (Re)Connecting with the Model in Our Current Landscape
This Midwest Partnership Series webinar will explore “participatory philanthropy” as a (re)emerging model and how funders in the Midwest are implementing components of the model to strengthen their grantmaking. The program will begin with a presentation to (re)introduce participatory grantmaking and share recent trends. The trends will be brought to life by 2-3 Midwest funders sharing their recent experiences. Finally, a learning space about participatory practice is incomplete without participation: expect small group breakouts to support cross-state networking and learning.
Join your peers for the opportunity to reconnect in person on health-related issues of interest to Michigan philanthropy. In addition to dedicated time for learning, there will be time set aside to network and discuss opportunities for collaboration. We are excited about all the ways philanthropy can contribute to improving the health of Michiganders. To that end, this meeting will be responsive to you and your interests with dedicated breakout conversations like mental health, workforce, health policy and more. Whether you are a devoted health funder or just interested in learning more about the challenges and opportunities to support innovation in the field, you are invited to participate.
