for Listen4Good Sustainability  
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 nine core funding partners, eight "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 supports the growth and sustainability of Shared Insight’s main initiative, Listen4Good.

for the Fund for Shared Insight donor collaborative  
The Fund for Shared Insight is a funder collaborative formed nearly six years ago. Its goal is that funders and nonprofits will be meaningfully more connected to each other and to the people and communities we seek to help — and more responsive to their input and feedback. Its signature initiative is Listen4Good. The Fund includes 13 core funders and 83 additional funders who collectively contribute $8 million each year (on average) to a pooled fund at Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors. The Fund has made grants to 435 organizations totaling over $24 million, and it is committed to rigorous measurement and sharing what it learns.
