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 we ultimately seek to help with our funding. Shared Insight has eight core funders who collectively contribute $6.5 million each year to a pooled fund at Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors. The fund has made 53 grants to 48 organizations, totaling $9.9 million, and is committed to rigorous measurement and sharing what it learns. Effective Philanthropy Group director, Fay Twersky, serves as a co-chair. The fund has grown to include another 25 co-funders at different levels.

Grants to this Grantee
for support of Dignity.us
Dignity.us is a bipartisan citizens’ initiative to address hate-fueled violence in America, starting by listening across all states, territories, and tribal lands for insights and ideas about the challenge and path forward. They seek input from Americans of every region, race, faith, ethnicity, and ideology – spanning those who have suffered the effects of this violence; researchers and experts who have studied the problem; social innovators and advocates leading the way with bold and tested ideas; philanthropists committed to allocating resources to the implementation and scaling of those ideas; and those who have left groups affiliated with hatred and violence and become a part of the solution. They will turn their findings into a countrywide response that greatly expands the scale of effective community-based innovations — and helps to mobilize and sustain a united front that transcends differences.
