Giving Compass’ Take:
• Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors examines the practice of collaborative philanthropy and how it’s able to increase impact, while managing risk.
• Collaborative philanthropy is a big area that refers to a wide range of actions, but this boils it down nicely for those still getting their feet wet. Basically, look at it as a learning opportunity for philanthropic partners.
As the landscape of philanthropy continues to expand and evolve, it’s become more and more clear that the future of systemic change — using giving to find solutions that address the underlying causes of social, economic and environmental problems — requires not only larger pools of funding, but more combined willpower and expertise. If your philanthropic vision involves truly moving the needle on a big issue, it’s worth exploring the possibility of bringing others along with you on the journey.
There are a number of benefits collaborative philanthropy can have, both for funders and for grantees.
Here are some of the reasons why you may want to consider dedicating a portion of your philanthropic dollars to collaborative giving efforts:
- Learning opportunity for donors
- Risk management
- Increased impact
- Necessary processes for decision-making
