Resources For Funders


Some resources for funders:

For funders interested in learning more about trust-based funding approaches, the trust-based philanthropy project has some excellent resources.

In addition, we highly recommend watching this short insightful and honest webinar from Pia Infante (Co-Executive Director of the Whitman Institute):

We also find this blog from John Rendel at Peter Cundill Foundation a useful and insightful read on unrestricted / general operating support funding.

Over 2020, Social Innovation Exchange (SIX) brought together a number of funders from across the world as a global scan to better understand global philanthropic responses to Covid-19. 


They were interested in the how more than the what. On this website here, you can find stories, insights and the provocations that they collected. It's a rich resource and well worth exploring. They also curated some insights in the pdf below. Many thanks to SIX for their ongoing work in this space. 


Additionally, the pdf below is a report entitled "Snapshot: Covid-19 grantmaking going forward in Southeast Asia and Hong Kong" that was compiled using research conducted by Just Cause and commissioned by Firetree in order to reflect on different Covid-19 philanthropic responses and look forward to 2021.
