Participatory grantmaking encompasses a range of models, methods, challenges, and insights. At its core, this approach to funding cedes decision-making power about grants to the very communities impacted by funding decisions. This special collection gathers the experience and insights of funders who have shifted power and builds on the wisdom explored in the GrantCraft guide "Deciding Together: Shifting Power and Resources through Participatory Grantmaking".

Letting the Movement Decide: FRIDA Grantmaking Report

November 19, 2015

FRIDA and TLP launched a Grantmaking Model Evaluation of FRIDA's work in February 2015. The aim of the evaluation is to assess, after three grant making cycles, FRIDA's impact and effectiveness in supporting young feminist groups. This resulting report serves to document FRIDA's practices, test FRIDA's assumptions on the model's impact, and offer recommendations for improvement. Many key learnings have already been used to adapt the model. This report utilizes existing materials on FRIDA's grantmaking model, including outreach and internal documentation, and a number of interviews with FRIDA staff, advisors, founders, grantees, and applicants.

FRIDA Annual Report Report 2014-15

September 1, 2015

FRIDA's work takes many forms and always aims to shake things up. Our participatory grantmaking breaks the tradition, and transfers the power of decision making into the hands of the young women, girls, and trans*youth that apply. We work with our partners to create linking, learning, and capacity development opportunities that young activists struggle to find, but are critical to strengthening impact, making connections, and building solidarity. This annual report provides details about grantmaking, and stories about FRIDA's collective work.
