Program Description

Read and be inspired with us! Join your grantmaker colleagues for our first-ever Philanthropy Missouri Member book discussion group. For this experience, we’ve selected a best-selling book by an author who will be speaking at the St. Louis Racial Equity Summit in August 2021: Edgar Villanueva’s Decolonizing Wealth: Indigenous Wisdom to Heal Divides and Restore Balance (2018), a critique of the sector.

This book club is intended to convene and connect grantmakers who are interested in exploring sector perspectives, with the understanding that enhanced knowledge and relationships can inform our work as grantmakers and collaborators.

Group Leaders and Timeline

Discussion will be led by Treena Thompson of the Lutheran Foundation of St. Louis, Wendy Jaffe of the Trio Foundation of St. Louis, and Ryan Strode of the Franciscan Sisters of Mary. The program will begin with a brief overview of sharing expectations, followed by a summary of each book section to provide context for group discussion.

Completion of the book ahead of the program is optional.
