For A Donor Collaborative To Increase Foundation Openness

The Fund for Shared Insight is a funder collaborative focused on increasing foundation openness in service of greater effectiveness. This includes foundations sharing more openly about their work, as well as being more open to what others have to share with us, especially feedback from the people foundations ultimately seek to help with our funding. Shared Insight has eight core funders and 28 additional funders who collectively contribute between $6 and $8 million each year to a pooled fund at Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors. To date, the fund has made 77 grants to 70 organizations totaling $13.8 million and is committed to rigorous measurement and sharing what it learns.

For Fund for Shared Insight  
Fund for Shared Insight is a funder collaborative devoted to creating pathways for foundations to listen to the people and communities they seek to serve through their giving. Since its launch in 2014, Shared Insight has grown to include 10 core funding partners, six "sidecar" contributors, and 116 additional Listen4Good co-funders; it has provided $29.3 million in funding to 528 organizations. An ongoing evaluation by ORS Impact continues to show that Shared Insight has strengthened nonprofit feedback practice and influenced the dialogue in the sector about the power of feedback to inform and improve nonprofits’ and funders’ work. This grant provides flexible, annual support to Shared Insight.
for support of the New Pluralists Collaborative  
The New Pluralists Collaborative, a fiscally sponsored project of Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors, seeks a paradigm shift in how Americans relate to each other across our differences. To do that, the collaborative hopes to catalyze a sea change in the mindsets, values, skills, and behaviors we embrace as individuals, and the behaviors we enact in our institutions and communities, in order to foster a bigger sense of "we" and equip all of us to work well together in a more pluralistic democracy.
