UWNCNM Grant Cycle Trust-Based Philanthropy

Move Towards Trust-Based Philanthropy

UWNCNM partners with community agencies to address systemic inequities.  Trust-based philanthropy is a tangible way to begin putting this intention into action.  UWNCNM is excited to make changes to our grant-making process as we learn and move towards this new approach.

As we continue to grow in our trust-based philanthropy practices, we appreciate patience as we evolve and value the feedback of our partner agencies.  For more information about trust-based philanthropy, please visit trustbasedphilanthropy.org.
