Helping place-based grantmakers use story to advance community change
Grassroots Grantmakers is a national network of place-based funders that work to advance community change on a range of social issues. With a growing interest in the power of story, and a few members actively engaged in local film-based initiatives, Grassroots Grantmakers sought Active Voice’s help in deepening understanding about how storytelling could unite the network while advancing local goals. In addition to discussing strategies to jumpstart local initiatives with a few informal working groups within the network, we co-presented a national webinar with the Fledgling Fund that featured the basics of using film for community engagement, case studies from local grantmakers, and strategies for generating sustained impact.
