Video | Shared Gifting with NC Food Councils – Shifting power with participatory grantmaking
In 2020, food councils across North Carolina distributed more than $100,000 in grants to each other. In this video, they share their experiences with Shared Gifting, a participatory grantmaking model where the participants have decision-making power in how the funds are distributed.
Shared Gifting is a participatory grantmaking process for shifting power, fostering innovation, and increasing connectivity across organizations.
We are grateful for the support from RSF Social Finance, University of Minnesota Extension, and the Maine Network of Community Food Councils for their expertise and experience in the Shared Gifting process.
