Public-Private-Community Partnerships: Putting Equity Into Action

As philanthropies across the country are re-evaluating their practices and looking for ways to center the voices of impacted communities in grant-making, one model is rearranging traditional power relationships. Public-private-community partnerships are taking a well-tested collective impact model and putting equity in the center by making community leaders equal partners with public agencies and private funders at the design and decision-making stages. 

These partnerships are deliberately iterative and intentionally co-designed with community leaders as core drivers, reimagining systems of care and placing the needs of communities of color at the heart of grantmaking. 

Please join the LA Partnership for Early Childhood Investment and SoCal Grantmakers onWednesday, October 20th from 10:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. PT for a virtual discussion with leaders from two Los Angeles-based initiatives who will share valuable insights into participatory processes that have garnered community buy-in and long-term community trust.
