Watch: Exploring trust-based philanthropy in the arts

October 2, 2022

In recent years, trust-based philanthropy has gained increasing attention as a way to build more productive relationships between funders and grantees. Based on the principle that these relationships can function as collaborative partnerships, a trust-based approach encourages multi-year unrestricted funding and streamlined reporting, with transparent and responsive communication. 


In this Speaker Series session on trust-based philanthropy in the arts, we were joined by Steven Ayer, Founder and Principal Consultant of Common Good Strategies. Together we explored the rise of trust-based philanthropy and considered its application to the non-profit arts sector. Our discussion covered how trust-based approaches can benefit both grantors and grantees, as well as some practical steps towards developing these partnerships.
