Our partnership project is called “Evaluation of the role and actions of Canadian grantmaking foundations in response to the social inequalities and environmental challenges”. For the network of grantmaking philanthropy, our partnership project represents an important and uncensored innovation. For the first time, we have brought together key actors of Canadian philanthropy within a research program with a collaborative intention.
