Exploring ideas and resources in philanthropy
In the latest issue of GFC’s Learning Playground, we explore youth-led participatory grantmaking, how funder listening can strengthen community-led approaches, and more. We also share a growing map of resources to reimagine philanthropy and global development. Check out the most recent issue from Vanessa Stevens, GFC’s Director of Innovation and Influencing.
