Partner Webinar: Looking to Our New Future: Funding Systems Change Effectively
Join Southern California Grantmakers, San Diego Grantmakers, and Ashoka, for a conversation that builds on Ashoka's unique collaboration with The Schwab Foundation for Social Entrepreneurship, the Skoll Foundation, and other colleagues to address how we can most effectively fund systems change.
We are living through an unprecedented, generation-defining moment, full of uncertainty. When this crisis passes — and it will — we will experience a moment of reckoning, where will confront a need to imagine a new world — one where everyone can thrive. The past few months have also underscored the failures of systems — from healthcare to social welfare to wage inequality and food insecurity — that exacerbated our current crisis. As we rebuild, we must ask ourselves how we will support those seeking to address these failures’ root causes. We must look to the future and imagine a world of mutual interest and prosperity. We must not revert to a philanthropic mindset of treating symptoms.
Join Southern California Grantmakers, San Diego Grantmakers, and Ashoka, for a conversation that builds on Ashoka’s unique collaboration with The Schwab Foundation for Social Entrepreneurship, the Skoll Foundation, and other colleagues to address how we can most effectively fund systems change. Based on the interviews with more than 130 social entrepreneurs and funders; it underlines the imperative for a new culture and philanthropy practice. Read more here.
We will be joined by Shivani Garg Patel — Chief Strategy Officer at Skoll Foundation — and Peter Zahn — CEO at the Moxie Foundation during this program. Together we will grapple with the messy, the non-linear nature of systems change — and what it takes to fund it well.
Please join this conversation and share with us: How are you working in partnership with social entrepreneurs to align funding, grant practices, and relationships to transform systems?
