Fund For Shared Insight
Category: Business & Finance
DescriptionThe Fund, administered by Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors, is a multi-year collaborative effort among funders that pools financial and other resources to make grants to improve philanthropy. The Fund’s Listening for Good Initiative is dedicated to building the practice of listening to the people the Fund seeks to help. The Fund seeks to support diverse “customer facing” nonprofits to either initiate or improve their practice of systematically collecting and using feedback from the people they seek to help. It seeks to accelerate the building of infrastructure needed for strong beneficiary feedback loops in the social sector. It also seeks to experiment and learn about applying/adapting the Net Promoter System to the beneficiary feedback context and engage more funders in supporting, using, and valuing beneficiary feedback. It also seeks to capture and share lessons learned with grantees, co-funders, and the field to positively catalyze the feedback movement and inform the work going forward. The Initiative is structured as a co-funding engagement. To participate in Listen for Good, a nonprofit must be nominated by one of its existing funders. If the nonprofit(s) a funder nominates is selected to participate in Listening for Good, the nominating funder will contribute $20,000 of the $60,000 grant total for each nonprofit selected. The Fund will accept proposals from funder-nominated nonprofits on a rolling basis until it has funded 50 nonprofits to participate in Listen for Good. Additional information can be found on the Web site.
