New Report Highlights Shared Insights – Invites Applications to Expand Practice

In 2014, seven funders collaborated to form the Fund for Shared Insight to cultivate the practice and culture of feedback in the nonprofit sector. The first component of Shared Insight’s theory of change focused on making grants to organizations to advance the practice of nonprofits using feedback loops to listen to, learn from, and act on what they hear from the people they seek to serve. A new report highlights the positive outcomes, lessons learned, and the potential for even greater results going forward. Fund for Shared Insight is once again accepting applications for their Listen for Good (L4G) initiative, which makes grants and provides technical assistance to nonprofits aiming to improve their work by listening to the people they seek to help. The deadline for this final co-funded round: June 29, 2018. Read more »
