We provide a variety of services to funding organizations:
Collaboration design and troubleshooting: Facilitating and supporting partnerships amongst a community of grantees is delicate work. Working with grantmakers, we use facilitation and dialogue to help organizations to identify opportunities for collaboration and to get struggling partnerships back on track.
Technology grantmaking support: The Internet has become an essential tool for civil society work, especially at the global level. We have a strong track record working with grantmakers on technology funding program design and the review of technology project proposals.
Practical research: Funding needs to be informed by solid information. We undertake research projects that provide insight into the needs, practices and trends, especially in relation to the use of networked technologies by non-profits.
Case studies and storytelling: Unique, world changing approaches only travel if their story is told. We have a passion for writing case studies and other materials that illustrate the work of organizations in a useful and replicable way, especially where organizations are using technology or networks to change the world.
