The Giving Project
The Giving Project funds social change, builds community, and develops leaders.
We bring multiracial, cross-class groups of people together each year to participate in Headwaters community-centered grantmaking process. Participants raise and give out money to organizations that support significant, long-term solutions for justice and equity across the state.
"What makes this model really special, to me, is that it disrupts the traditional philanthropic model...."
