    Recent Alliance Magazine article – To Shift Power, Fund Entire Ecosystems

    “To foster ambitious change – and truly shift power while doing so – funders must focus not on organizations but on systems. As donors localize and place big bets, they should ask themselves if their funding will help sustain the ecosystem, if it will generate conflict between organizations, if it will help democratize funding, or if, perversely, it will serve to concentrate power or leave grantees overly dependent and ‘donor driven.’ Perhaps funders could begin to think about how widely they are able to spread their funding and how doing so can support positive inter-organizational dynamics, rather than how large they can make a singular grant.”
