The six funds that make up this learning community have adopted a shared model to expand their reach among diverse communities of donors and distribute more money to social justice movements. Since 2010, Giving Projects have moved $5 million from over 8,000 donors.
Over the past three years, the six participating funds have formed a learning community to spread the Giving Project model and support each other in our work. We are sharing innovations and best practices, building cross-region relationships, and working to further spread the model.
“What makes this model really special, to me, is that it disrupts the traditional philanthropic model, replacing it with one in which the community plays every role. Which, in turn, increases both engagement and accountability”
