In April 2023, select members of the Philanthropy sector in Ireland convened a meeting to explore the potential of ‘Philanthropy for Community Organising’
Community Organising can powerfully impact democratic skills. Collaboration listening, forging consensus; power balance; negotiations, etc. It can provide a sense of agency and build capacity to positively influence for reform.
What is the potential for philanthropic investment in Community Organising? This is an opportunity to explore this question led by peers and colleagues leading on grant making.
