Writers’ roundtable: The future of philanthropy
A particular Future of Good story made the rounds on Twitter last month — being shared across Canada and around the world. And for good reason: it’s about an initiative that completely turns the settler philanthropic model on its head.
The story profiles a council of Indigenous aunties to whom funders must apply for the opportunity to fund organizations in their network.
The Right Relations Collaborative’s work is indicative of a shift that Future of Good’s writers have observed in philanthropy: beyond consultations, beyond trust-based philanthropy, beyond all the buzzwords, real power over the stewardship of wealth is shifting.
Join some of the Future of Good editorial team for an in-depth conversation about all this and more.
Gabe Oatley, editorial fellow on transforming funding models — and author of the aforementioned story — will dive deep into why the Right Relations Collaborative’s work struck such a chord in the social purpose world. We’ll also be joined by Sherlyn Assam, editorial fellow on women’s economic resilience and graduate of Carleton University’s master of philanthropy and nonprofit management program, and Brennan Doherty, who’s worked as Future of Good’s news and features writer for almost two years, for a roundtable conversation about how philanthropy is — and isn’t — keeping up with the demand for shifting power. The conversation will be moderated by me!
This event is free and open to both members and non-members of Future of Good. Bring your friends!
Date: Thursday, May 5
