It’s Not Just That You Collaborate, It’s The Way You Collaborate

Come and engage in a dynamic conversation about the ethical principles that should be at the forefront of foundation collaboration! Through peer-to-peer debate and learning, participants will be invited to explore the content of proposed principles and exchange ideas on how they could be applied to advance their own organization’s programming and shared with the members they support.

Two years ago, some of the leading consulting groups supporting nonprofit and philanthropic collaborations—who are otherwise competitors—came together to create a set of guiding principles for collaborations occurring in the philanthropic environment, be they between foundations, nonprofits, government, private entities, or some mix or combination. Since then, the group revised and re-revised the principles so that they represented high aspirations, were grounded in experience, and were applicable to philanthropic-sponsored collaborations broadly. Their work argues that how foundations “show up” and pursue collaboration is as important as the agendas pursued by those collaborations. Now, your insights, open mind, and creativity are needed to advance this important conversation!
