Over the course of our learning and grantmaking, we've come across extraordinary research, quotes, images, articles, and insights by people and organizations all over the world. This is a collection of inspirational resources that drive our work.
While trust-based philanthropy tends to be associated with a set of six grantmaking practices, a fully trust- based approach invites practitioners to rely on trust-based values to guide four key dimensions of a grantmaking organization’s work: culture, structures, leadership, and practices.
"In the practice of our philanthropy, we are committed to the values of being in service to the public trust, upholding transparency in our work, providing general operating support, continuing to learn and adapt, and trusting grantees and the communities they serve.”
