Grantmaking is hard, but it’s even harder when you aren’t engaging the voices of people with lived experience. In this webinar, authors Ben Wrobel and Meg Massey will provide tangible examples of participatory grantmaking in practice and share wisdom from their book, Letting Go: How Philanthropists and Impact Investors Can Do More Good by Giving Up Control. They  will discuss how funders can begin their journey to shifting power, as well as how this powerful philosophy can be applied to today’s urgent challenges, from climate change to public health.
