Resources from Trauma-Informed Philanthropy: From Knowledge to Action

Publication date: 
July, 2018

Though there have been significant scientific advances to help us better understand how adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) and trauma are contributing factors towards negative health outcomes later in life, there remains little guidance on how to address these issues within the context of cross-sector philanthropic settings. 

On July 16th, the Funder Network on Trauma & Resilience hosted a webinar that showcased Trauma-Informed Philanthropy, a two volume guide from the United Way of Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey, the Thomas Scattergood Behavioral Health Foundation, and Philanthropy Network of Greater Philadelphia.  Panelists from the Pennsylvania Humanities Council and Health Federation of Philadelphia explored the impact of trauma-informed philanthropy on both internal organizational culture and cross-sector collaboration, and shared lessons for Bay Area funders interested in this work.
