More than 700 foundations have signed philanthropy’s COVID-19 pledge, committing them, among other important practices, to lift up the voices of those least heard in the public discourse and decision-making around crisis response.
Join Fund for Shared Insight, Grantmakers for Effective Organizations, and three grantmaker panelists to explore how funders might live out that commitment and related goals and values around connecting with, listening to, being informed by, and acting on what we hear from the people and communities we seek to help.
This webinar, moderated by Marcus Walton, CEO of GEO, will feature a discussion with Kelley Gulley of The James Irvine Foundation, LaTida Smith of the Moses Taylor Foundation, and Melissa Luna of GreenLight Fund Boston. Among other key perspectives and insights, expect to learn:
How they are listening to the people and communities they seek to help.
How their listening efforts are changing during this COVID-19 crisis.
How feedback connects with efforts around equity.
How listening and feedback inform their foundation’s day-to-day and strategic thinking.
This conversation is intended for Listen4Good co-funder and nonprofit partners, GEO members, Council on Foundation COVID-19 philanthropy pledge signers, and any funders working to build their listening and feedback practices.
