How Community Philanthropy Shifts Power: What Donors Can Do to Make That Happen

While slogans like “think globally, act locally” have been around for decades, so much decision making about philanthropy and development aid still happens by stakeholders outside of affected communities. This GrantCraft Leadership Series paper focuses on how funders around the globe are challenging this norm by sharing and shifting power into the hands of local leadership. It explores examples, advice, and the driving questions for donors interested in producing people-owned changes, without losing sight of their institutional interests. Donors interested in producing lasting results that are people-owned and led will find this particularly valuable.
