The Power of Place-Based Philanthropy
There are key advantages to philanthropists adopting a "place-based approach" to their giving. Given their connection and deep understanding, community-based philanthropists can deploy all their assets: funding, networks, and expertise to complement the community's own resources, strengths, and ideas for change. Whether targeting systems or focusing on one issue at a time, place-based philanthropy is grounded in a commitment to true partnership with communities in pursuit of shared, positive, and long-lasting transformation. This panel will bring together philanthropists and foundations who are using a place-based approach to examine what works and what doesn't.
