For A Donor Collaborative To Increase Foundation Openness

Overview
With this grant, the Philanthropy Grantmaking Program officially begins a new strategy focused on increasing openness in the sector. Openness is a pre-requisite to effectiveness because it enables philanthropy to attract good ideas from multiple sources, facilitate faster testing and learning on the path to impact, improve grantee relationships with funders and among one another, strengthen collaboration and reduce duplication of effort, and build communities of shared learning and action. This is a strategy best pursued collaboratively, and thus to start we will partner with five other funders and create a $5.75 million pooled grant fund at Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors (RPA) from which we will recommend grants together.
