Advocacy Funder Collaboratives

For many foundations, collaboration is key to advocating for policy change. But these partnerships can be challenging to execute well. “Sticking points,” like conflicts over decision-making power or competition for resources, can derail advocacy-focused efforts and make even the most earnest collaborator wary.

Foundation Center, in partnership with the Atlas Learning Project, launched a suite of resources about advocacy funder collaboratives. Built from the wisdom of grantmakers with deep experience, the GrantCraft content and IssueLab special collection examine what makes an effective collaborative and ways to overcome sticking points to maximize the potential for success.
