The most popular session at our May Member meeting featured funders and grantee partners in candid discussions on building trusting relationships that shift power to grantees and the communities they serve. If you missed those discussions, or want to continue digging deeper into grantmaker/grantee relationships, join us on August 25th for a discussion with two grantmaker/grantee pairs on how they are building trust and shifting power, and lessons each has learned from their relationship.

Joining us:

  • Rachel Schumacher, Project Manager, Raising Child Care Fund & RCCF grantee partner Mary Ignatius, Parent Voices CA
  • Nancy Jost, Director of Early Childhood, West Central Initiative & grantee partner Jeannie Pederson, Pope County THRIVE Initiative Coordinator (Minnesota)

We will explore ideas and strategies for having these conversations with your own grantees, and how ECFC can support your efforts to build trust and shift power.


This session is intended for ECFC members who missed our May in-person meeting, or those who attended who would like to build on May meeting discussions around building trust/shifting power with grantees.  Any staff person of an ECFC member is welcome to join us.
