Who We Are
In March 2020, a group involved in Participatory Grantmaking (PGM), began meeting to share their work, ideas and hopes for the future of PGM. Since then our community has grown to over 800 people from around the world. Members of our community represent a wide range of actors within philanthropy. This includes people working with or within foundations, with funders, and donors who are actively working to transform existing power dynamics to move decision-making authority to communities being served.

Mission & Vision
The Participatory Grantmaking Community is a global collective of individuals and organizations interested in sharing knowledge and practice to improve participatory grantmaking and encourage its use within philanthropy. 

We believe that when grantmaking processes are designed and owned by communities themselves, philanthropy will be more effective, democratic, and just.
