“1. Others struggle with the privilege and oppression tied up in grantmaking and the existence of wealth that allows endowed funding organizations to exist. 2. Grantee-funder relationships built on trust can be transformational. 3. There exist myriad brilliant, thoughtful, critical thinkers working at the intersection between art, culture, and social justice”. Deidra Montgomery
