Trust-Based Philanthropy 101
April 7, 2020
2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
What if we began funding relationships by offering trust instead of making a new partner earn it? How could this benefit our collective work and humanity? What does embodying trust-based practice actually look like? The Wisconsin Philanthropy Network invites you to join Brenda Solorzano, CEO of the Headwaters Foundation and Sarah Walczyk, Executive Director of the Satterberg Foundation as they explore these questions. Trust-based practice benefits whole systems — enabling both funders and nonprofits to do our work with more ease, authenticity and joy. We think trust creates relationships that allow grantee partners to access more than dollars and helps funders learn more than outcomes. The two foundations will demonstrate ways we embody trust-based practice guiding principles, what it means in docket time, how it is different from what we did before, and what the benefits and challenges are for foundations and grantees, as well as the philanthropic sector.
This event is hosted by the Wisconsin Philanthropy Network and is open to all Funders.
