Description

What would happen if more funders saw their grantees as “funded partners” and proactively sought candid feedback on their grantmaking process? To explore these questions, representatives from the St. Louis Funders Learning and Evaluation Group (FLEG) – Grantee Voice Committee polled 170 local grantees and funders, conducted a cross-sector workshop, and analyzed results. Join us as we hear from them on what the data reveals about grantee/funder relationships and opportunities for meaningful partnerships.

Participants will leave this program with:

  • An overview of FLEG and the Grantee Voice Committee’s initiatives;
  • Valuable insights into meaningful funder/grantee relationships;
  • Actionable and intentional ways to increase trust and transparency in grantee/funder relationships.
