How can we work better, together, in our quest for implementing change?  At our July 11th meeting, we’ll explore changes we are making to our grantmaking with an eye to equity, and mindful of not doing more harm.
Join your peers funding in the Western MA counties for the Western MA Funders Network. Our conversation will build on two, recent informal meet ups that took place, focused on doing better work without doing more harm.  Whether or not you attended the prior informal meet-ups, please join us.
Topics we expect to touch on include:
  • Collaboration to make things easier for grantseekers (you’ll hear about an initiative we already started in this regard)
  • Funding C4 organizations
  • Fiscal sponsorships
We hope to conclude our meeting with concrete ideas for action.

About the Network:

The Western MA Funders' Network is an inclusive network for grantmakers funding in, or based in, the four counties of Western Massachusetts: Berkshire, Hampden, Hampshire, and Franklin. The network exists as a peer community to support grantmakers in the region and ultimately, to create a positive impact throughout Western Massachusetts.  

A Network priority is advancing racial equity through grantmaking in Western MA. The intent is to do this for, and with, the most marginalized in the communities of the region. Network members desire to keep learning, dialoging on a regular basis, and collaborating in its effort to advance racial equity through grantmaking.
