Emergent Fund: Defying Philanthropy’s Hierarchical Streak

We relaunched the Emergent Fund for 2018! The Emergent Fund is is a joint project with WDN, Solidaire, Threshold Foundation, and the Democracy Alliance.

Last year, the Fund moved $1.1 million and our participatory grantmaking model was recently featured in Inside Philanthropy, “Networks, especially those developed by women, tend to be more collaborative and less hierarchical. The result, in this case, is a rapid-response fund that is something of a maverick.”
