What Makes Funder Collaboration Effective?
The past decade has seen a steady uptick in the number of funder collaboratives along with a surge in the volume of funds flowing through them, now over $2 billion annually. There is no shortage of webinars, books, and articles tell those of us in the philanthropic field that by working together we can be more than the sum of our parts.
Yet while most collectives report on field-level outcomes, they rarely document the realities of working together. The Transparency and Accountability Initiative (TAI) wanted to know what makes collaboration between their funder members work (or not), and how to do it better.
