Collaborative funds are growing in numbers all over the world. Join this growing community where collaborative fund leaders are sharing learnings, bold ideas, challenges, questions, and opportunities.

The Collaboratives Community Sessions are monthly content and discussion spaces to explore how to strengthen our collective efforts. Over the course of the year we’ll bring in guest speakers, highlight perspectives from collaboratives themselves, share new reports and insights, and explore broader themes that strengthen our collective efforts.

Messaging on Collaboratives: Lessons from Research & Learnings from the Field

Collaborative philanthropy models are powerful—but messaging on collaboratives can be challenging given the nuance of this philanthropic structure. This session takes a deep dive look into effective messaging from two perspectives. Brunswick Group will share key findings from research with hundreds of high net wealth donors about their perceptions of collaboratives and what messaging resonates most compellingly. We’ll also hear insights from Panorama Global, who led a Co-Lab session at the Global Summit of Collaborative Funds in October 2023 and crowdsourced the top ten messages collaboratives themselves feel are most powerful. By examining both research insights and what resonates directly with frontline collaborative leaders, this session will illuminate helpful ideas and guidance for any collaborative fund looking to strengthen their messaging and engagement.

Join the Collaborative Funds Virtual Community!

Hosted by Philanthropy Together, we invite any and all Collaborative Funds (and related philanthropic support organizations) to join in ongoing learning and sharing of resources and ideas on Slack, through a Google Group listserv, and a WhatsApp group.

We recognize that the same systems might not work for everyone, so feel free to choose one or all! This is a work-in-progress pilot to see how to better bring together Collaborative Funds into the same community for shared learning.
