Philanthropy.
Open for improvement.



Fund for Shared Insight is a collaborative effort among funders to make grants that improve philanthropy.

Imagine nonprofits listening to, learning from and acting on what we hear from the people we seek to help.

Imagine foundations routinely more open about what we do, how we work, why we make the decisions we do and the lessons we have learned – both the good and the bad?

Imagine feedback loops that continually improve process and outcomes.

Imagine philanthropy improved.
