Knowledge Sharing to Strengthen Grantmaking

Knowledge has the power to spark change, but only if it is shared. In this GrantCraft guide, grantmakers share how and why their foundations openly share knowledge as an integral and strategic aspect of philanthropy. Learn from their firsthand experience how to grow organizational capacity and culture for knowledge sharing, address common concerns, and use knowledge exchange to advance your mission and impact.

This guide was developed as part of #OpenForGood, a campaign to encourage foundations to openly share their knowledge. As with other GrantCraft guides, it primarily draws on interviews with philanthropic leaders working across diverse fields and foundation settings. It also benefits from informal input and thought leadership shared in other stages of the #OpenForGood campaign, including the design and launch of IssueLab.
