The Power of Thinking Small: Smaller Grants Can Have Big Impact
COVID-19 is changing how we think about philanthropy. Join us for a presentation pondering: What is the value of including smaller and/or newer grantees in the grants process? How does this enrich both the grantee and the grantor? How does the affiliate adjust to listen to the non-profit who best knows the issues being faced and the possible solutions? What can these non-profits teach us about our communities?
The Spirit of St. Louis Women’s Fund has specialized in small grants since its founding in 2007, awarding over $2.7 million dollars in grants between $5,000 and $25,000. Impact 100 Seattle is one of our newer organizations making their first grants in 2020. They use a model of trust-based philanthropy to listen to and learn from small nonprofits in the Puget Sound Basin.
