Trust in Action: The Bridge Between Grantmakers and the Grassroots

Jun 05, 2024
  • Description

Grassroots organizations are a driving force for transformation, intimately understanding the unique challenges and opportunities within their communities.  However, traditional funding models leave grassroots groups with limited access to funding, minimal resources to operate effectively, and rigid funding restrictions, hindering their ability to fully address community needs and nurture community change.

This resource provides community-based organizations (CBOs) with the language and framework to advocate for trust-based partnerships. Formulated in solidarity with the growing movement to shift power in philanthropy and global development, it's a call to action for funders and International Development Organizations to embrace a more equitable approach.
