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. Changes this year include:
- Offering General Operating Dollar awards for Impact and Basic Needs grants to fund overall agency outcomes
- Simplifying our grant application
- Requiring Financial Standards Review (FSR) only for agencies selected for award
- Grant review panels that include both staff and individuals with direct and lived experience, as well as community members
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.
