What can we do as funders in terms of supporting Indian Email List the important work that our grantee partners are doing? So whether it’s making introductions or convening them, it gives them a chance and all of us to think about different ways that we can support each other and do something more than just writing a check. And so those, in total, are the six practices that encompass the trust-based approach. MICHAEL: And, Phil, the point you made at the beginning was important, that these aren’t necessarily new approaches, but thinking of them in these terms Indian Email List as trust-based approaches, what might be new? I think that in the past year and a half, we’ve seen many foundations and donors leaning into things like providing more general operating support, streamlining the application process, but they wouldn’t necessarily have characterized these as taking Indian Email List on a trust-based approach to philanthropy.

PHIL: I think there definitely has been that moment, right? There Indian Email List was the COVID-19 pledge that was shaped and created by the Ford Foundation on the Council on Foundation’s website. And many of the ways in which foundations were invited to change up, if you will, their practices are really informed by the trust-based approach, and more than 800 foundations nationally have signed on to relax and change some of the ways that they have done their Indian Email List grant-making. MICHAEL: We’ve definitely seen that too. Nadia, it’s great to see you. We’ve worked together at Stanford PACS, and, you know, one thing I think is that both EPLI and SSIR were founded with many of the principles of strategic philanthropy in mind. So how would you explain what Indian Email List characterizes this approach and what it means?

NADIA ROUMANI: Hi, Michael, it’s great to be here, I think Indian Email List a strategic approach has been central to the work I was doing at Stanford and continue to do. But before diving into strategic philanthropy, one of the things I’d want to do is just take a step back and talk about why taking a strategic approach is important to the social sector at large. There are so many needs in the social sector, from addressing issues of poverty or affordable housing, health equity, Indian Email List the list is endless. So it can be hard for practitioners or donors to figure out where to focus. And that’s why having a strategic approach in this sector is important, which means having organizations clearly define their desired outcomes, articulating how they’re going to get there, Indian Email List and then monitoring and tracking their progress along the way.
