Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors

For A Donor Collaborative To Increase Foundation Openness

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.

Grants to this Grantee
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.
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.
