Grants that Encourage Openness in Philanthropy


Grants that Encourage Openness in Philanthropy

There is a new, seven-foundation partnership established that support nonprofits to become more effective and engaged. The Fund for Shared Insight has announced its first round of grants, which are intended “to encourage and incorporate feedback from the people the social sector seeks to help; understand the connection between feedback and better results; foster more openness between and among foundations and grantees; and share lessons.”
