Discuss the value of collaboration in philanthropy. Learn how philanthropists work together to leverage their time, money, and results. Think about ways you can work together with others for causes you care about. As someone who cares about giving, there’s good news: You don’t have to go it alone. Joining forces with others can be a way to accomplish your giving goals — and do more than you could have on your own. These days, more philanthropists are working together to make their money go further and have more impact. Some funders come together to learn from one another; others align their giving for greater public awareness. Still others combine their money into one collective “pot” and decide — as a group — where to give their dollars. You’re probably already very savvy about collaboration from group work in school! This guide will help you translate that experience into working with others in philanthropy in a way that’s both effective and fun.
