Funder and Power Dynamics

Funder and Power Dynamics, with Brittny and Nia

Brittny and Nia are the hosts of The Nonprofit Reframe podcast. The three of us talk about funder power dynamics:

  • When used for good, funders can fuel real change (ie: board diversity)
  • When used for…not so good, funders can really harm the sector and the organization’s it’s trying to support (ie: ridiculous reporting requirements for tiny grants)
  • At worst, these power dynamics are exploited for the gain of the funder and not the societal good
  • Things are changing and need to continue to change if we want to see nonprofits and their services scale impact
