The funding landscape in Québec – and Montréal in particular- has seen increased willingness for collaborative philanthropy and a renewed interest in place-based work. Both of these trends have accelerated through the pandemic, showing once more the power of place and the importance of collaboration.
How are place-based funders working together to advance community priorities? Join us to learn more from a funder’s perspective about why and how three leading philanthropic actors in Québec are supporting place-based approaches: Lucie and André Chagnon Foundation, Centraide of Greater Montreal and Foundation of Greater Montreal.
These funders will also share insights from their collaboration on Montreal’s Collective Impact Project (CIP), an innovative and inspiring example of place-based philanthropy, drawing upon the tradition of comprehensive community change initiatives and influenced by the Collective Impact framework. By embracing a placed-based focus at the neighbourhood scale and a clear long-term goal of reducing poverty, the CIP empowers local neighbourhoods to generate changes that are designed by and for their own community.
Join Myriam Bérubé as she invites Patricia Rossi (Vice-president Partnerships of the Lucie and André Chagnon Foundation), Rotem Ayalon (Lead on the Collective Impact Project operated by Centraide of Greater Montreal) and Tasha Lackman (Vice-president of the Foundation of Greater Montreal) to share their diverse experiences in the practice of place-based philanthropy and how it can lead to deeper impact and greater learnings.
Speakers: Patricia Rossi, Rotem Ayalon and Tasha Lackman
Moderator: Myriam Bérubé
