NCG has partnered with the Trust-Based Philanthropy Project (TBPP) to bring the trust-based philanthropy framework to our members since its inception in 2019. Trust-based practices are undergirded by a set of values grounded in advancing equity, interrogating power imbalances, and cultivating mutually accountable relationships, and that exist within four dimensions of an organization: its culture, structures, leadership, and practices.
How to Engage
NCG has long advocated for the practices inherent to trust-based philanthropy, and appreciates the TBP Project’s focus on a holistic approach to grantmaking. In an effort to socialize the approach and support the NCG member community in adopting trust-based practices, we have partnered on numerous programs focused on the different elements of trust-based philanthropy. Our most recent offering, a 6-month peer exchange, concluded in December 2022.
