The confluence of events and crises of the last several years – and 2020 in particular – have led to seismic shifts and disruption in the world as we know it. Lessons from this historic time have deep implications for the sector that go beyond grantmaking to include more fundamental questions about the role, power, and influence of philanthropy in advancing equity and positive social change. It requires a look inward at the practices, policies, structures, and cultural norms that govern how foundations operate, implement strategies, and seek to tackle the mission-critical issues they care about. What can we learn from this period of crisis? What does it really look like to shift norms, practices, and power in ways that lead to sustainable solutions? In what tangible ways are foundations shifting their practices and redesigning their structures to embed equity throughout their organizations? What does it take and what gets in the way? Based on evaluation work with two California-based funders, we use the iconic iceberg model as a tool to move beyond the surface-level response to crisis to explore tangible shifts in foundation practices, structures, and cultural norms. We highlight the experience of The California Endowment and The James Irvine Foundation to illustrate how the tool can be used and share reflections about facilitators, barriers, and what it really takes to make transformational shifts in practice, mindsets, and culture.
