Our Journey To Become Better Grantmakers: Insights from the Center for Disaster Philanthropy

As a global grantmaker focused on promoting equitable disaster recovery, the Center for Disaster Philanthropy (CDP) funds partners that vary in size, capacity, geographic reach, and primary language. In 2022, CDP undertook a process of consultation, process review, and change management to embed further the principles of equity, trust, localization, and racial and intersectional equity in its grantmaking. This interactive session will explore building trusting relationships with grantee partners, narrowing the power gap, considering equity, establishing application and reporting requirements that minimize burdens, and supporting local organizations working closest to disaster-affected populations. Session attendees will be challenged in how and who they fund and be provided opportunities to share insights that will advance the group’s knowledge and learning.
