Upcoming Webinar – Shifting Approaches to Funding: Learnings from Scaling Solutions and BUILD Initiatives

December 15, 2018

Join us on Wednesday, January 22 at 2:00 pm EST to learn about findings from RPA’s Scaling Solutions initiative and Ford Foundation’s BUILD program, two programs that explore shifts underway in philanthropy to make it more responsive and effective.

The Building Institutions and Networks (BUILD) initiative is a five-year, $1 billion investment by the Ford Foundation in the long-term capacity and sustainability of up to 300 social justice organizations around the world. Our support aims to strengthen these institutions, making them more effective at achieving their core missions, and reducing inequality in all its forms.

Scaling Solutions is an initiative encouraging funders to work more collaboratively to place longer-term, more adaptive resources with grantees and investees to help scale solutions toward shifting systems. For funders seeking to address the world’s pressing and urgent  challenges, Scaling Solutions provides recommendations and findings on funder collaboratives aimed specifically at systems change based on research and analysis of the philanthropic sector.
