Fundraising for Collective Impact Initiative
Can someone give guidance in regard to collective impact initiatives and fundraising?
The research I have done points to the importance of funding the backbone organization(s).
How do we create a funding model that not only supports the backbone organization but the agencies that are working just as hard to make this collaboration work?
Example: I'm part of a collective impact initiative. I have a relationship with a funder who gives my agency $50,000 per year. The collective impact initiative backbone agency is seeking financial support from the same funder. Has anyone framed up an ask that doesn't hurt the finances of the nonprofit agency while still supporting the backbone agency?
