New Philanthropy Capital - The benefits and challenges of trust based philanthropy

Drawing on NPC’s research over the last six months, this session will explore what’s great about Trust Based Philanthropy.

There are currently lots of discussions taking place about Trust Based Philanthropy, a US based funding model (as opposed to wider discussions about trust) that is starting to gain profile and traction here in the UK. But Trust Based Philanthropy is not a flawless philanthropic model, and many resources don’t provide enough practical guidance on how to address some of its inherent challenges – issues like trust bias, dealing with broken trust, and adequate impact measurement.

Drawing on NPC’s research over the last six months, this session will explore what’s great about Trust Based Philanthropy. Together, we will look at the best parts of the Trust Based Philanthropy principles and discuss how adopting these could help you form closer and more transparent relationships with your grantees. Alongside the best bits of Trust Based Philanthropy, we will also look at some of its challenges and how to work around them.  We will explore the actions you can take to mitigate against issues such as trust bias, and provide a framework for you to engage with the best of the Trust Based Philanthropy principles.
