A “why” is more useful when paired with a “how.”

In Fall 2016, philanthropic trio Scattergood Foundation, United Way of Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey and Philanthropy Network Greater Philadelphia released a guide to increase local funders’ awareness of the effects of childhood trauma.

Think of “Trauma-Informed Philanthropy: A Funder’s Resource Guide to Supporting Trauma-Informed Practice in the Delaware Valley” as an introduction to understanding how trauma leads to poor health and social outcomes, especially for youth, with case studies of organizations such as Youth Sentencing and Reentry Project and Children’s Crisis Treatment Center.

Trauma-Informed Philanthropy 101, if you will.

Yesterday, those organizations released part two of their guide. “Trauma-Informed Philanthropy: Volume Two” furthers the original’s ideas by detailing the actions funders need to take to implement trauma-informed practices.

In its own words, the guide is built to help funders:

  • Incorporate a trauma-informed approach into their grantmaking
  • Foster collaboration and cross-sector networks
  • Build the field through evaluation
