Funding and Fostering Local Democracy: What Philanthropy Should Know about the Emerging Field of Deliberation and Democratic Governance

“Funding and Fostering Local Democracy: What Philanthropy Should Know about the Emerging Field of Deliberation and Democratic Governance” was written by Matt Leighninger and published in April 2009 by PACE (Philanthropy for Active Civic Engagement). This guide provides a detailed description of how local civic engagement has grown and developed over the past decade and aims to help funders, public officials and community activists better understand the possibilities, and limitations, of various approaches to working with the public.

The guide includes a list of some of the main organizations working in this field, describes some of the most influential models and processes, and provides examples of particularly significant democratic governance efforts. It also outlines some of the cutting-edge questions facing the field and provides a long list of resources to consult.

The publication is available for download here.
