Building Partnerships to Maximize Local Impact





Building viable partnerships with other funders and local government when giving in place can lead to pooled resources and wrap around services for a larger impact within a given community. However, with many voices at the table, sometimes garnering the necessary momentum and buy-in can be a slow process, or potentially a non-starter. During this webinar, we looked at how some funders have successfully partnered with other entities in their local communities and examined how funder consortiums such as Living Cities could serve as an example for the philanthropic sector.
