Joining Forces: Funder Collaboratives for International Projects

A GrantCraft webinar in partnership with Africa Grantmakers' Affinity Group

Sponsored by Carnegie Corporation of New York

 

Thursday, October 27, 2011, 2:00-3:30PM EST

 

Many foundations seek to maximize their efficiency and effectiveness through collaboration -- especially when it comes to investing in international projects.

What are foundations learning about funder collaboratives, and how can these partnerships provide benefits and solutions to funding internationally?  Join us as we explore how funder collaboratives help grantmakers aim for larger goals, distribute risks, learn together, and achieve greater impact.  Hear from your colleagues and share your own experiences.

Topics will include:

  • Funder collaborative models
  • Value versus cost of collaboratives
  • Relationships among members in the collaborative and their grantees
  • Challenges encountered and lessons learned

This discussion will be moderated by Bradford K. Smith, president of the Foundation Center.

Featured panelists include: Omotade Akin Aina, program director, and Andrea Johnson, program officer, from the Carnegie Corporation of New York; Ellen Dorsey, executive director of Wallace Global Fund; Sarah Hobson, executive director of New Field Foundation; and Peter Laugharn, executive director of Firelight Foundation.
