The People’s Fund aims to be a platform and an amplifier for our grantees, not a gatekeeper to funding. We understand, however, that for many funders supporting grantees through The People’s Fund can be a stepping stone to building relationships that lead to future direct funding.
Whenever possible, we encourage funders to donate to grantees directly rather than through our program. We welcome the opportunity to facilitate direct giving to our grantees, so please reach out to us if you would like an introduction.
Want to learn more about our participatory process, our grant committee, or our successes and challenges? Looking for advice on shifting your own processes to uproot inequity, center grantees, and entrust decision-making power? We love to connect with fellow funders! Please reach out to our grant manager, Erin Kwiatkowski.
