Through Philamplify, foundations have a way to determine if they’re being as impactful as they can be
Grantmakers operate in a bubble – many don’t receive unvarnished critical feedback from staff, peers, grantees and other stakeholders.
To top it off, most traditional assessments don’t capture key elements of effective grantmaking in support of lasting, positive social change.
As a result, most foundations don’t really know if they could be doing their work better, or how, to support the issues and communities they care about.
Through Philamplify’s expert assessments and POWER MOVES, we offer two ways for grantmakers to have a comprehensive, nuanced examination of goals, strategies and practices for actionable recommendations to help our communities thrive and make our world a better place.
PHILAMPLIFY FOR MORE RESPONSIVE SOCIAL JUSTICE GRANTMAKING
To nonprofits, community leaders and others on the front lines of social movements: Philamplify can help grantmakers supporting your work become more effective and responsive donors.
Just let us know:
- Has a foundation that funds in your issue or community already been assessed?
Ask that foundation how it is changing practice in response to stakeholders’ feedback and our recommendations.
- Do you know a foundation that would benefit from using POWER MOVES, the only self-assessment guide that helps grantmakers determine how well they are building, sharing and wielding power to achieve equity goals?
Tell us about that foundation, and we’ll reach out to them. And please ask others in your networks to do the same.
- Are you part of a social movement that is being harmed or hampered by foundation practices that don’t build, share or wield power as effectively as they could?
Are you prepared to challenge the funder(s) to improve? Contact Lisa Ranghelli to let us know which grantmaker(s) should be assessed by NCRP so they can support social movements like yours more effectively.
