About this webinar
With support from the Fund for Shared Insight, the Collective Impact Forum has worked closely with eight grantmaking organizations in an “Action Learning Lab” for improving foundation openness.
This webinar shares lessons learned from the action learning cohort, including practical insights for funders and how they engage with their grantees.
Participants will hear findings from the recently released report, Advancing Funders’ Openness Practices, summarizing the implications from the action learning projects, including practical insights on internal openness practices (e.g., Board buy-in around collective impact) and external openness practices (e.g., engaging and building relationships with grantees and community stakeholders).
