Join us for the first PSLN program of 2023. To launch a year of learning around Building and Sustaining Transparent and Collaborative Relationships with Grantees, the March 29 program is a customized, facilitated session with Chantias Ford, Director of Programs at The Trust- Based Philanthropy Project.

More than reviewing the principles of Trust-Based Philanthropy (TBP), this interactive session will highlight the importance of transparency for stronger grantee relationships, outline the types of philanthropic transparency that are key, and lift up ways to practice TBP and advance these practices from your seat as Program Staff. This session will also include space for action planning and goal setting. We will also be holding an informal follow-up session with Chantias to further discuss this and to check-in on our goal progress on April 13th from 1pm - 2pm.

See below for participation criteria for this Network. We ask that only those that fit the criteria register. The registration list will be reviewed regularly and those that do not fit the criteria will be removed. Please email Jessica Berns if you have any questions.
