We are delighted to publish “Participatory Grantmaking in the Jewish Community and Beyond” as part of our Guides for Intelligent Giving series.
Authored by Third Plateau Social Impact Strategies and funded by Crown Family Philanthropies, the new guide offers a comprehensive look at participatory grantmaking (PGM), a practice that seeks to make philanthropy more inclusive of and responsive to the needs of communities being funded.

It also offers cases studies, as well as extensive resources for those considering incorporating elements of PGM into their work.Read more
