When donors share ideas and fund collectively their impact is magnified beyond the sum of its parts. Here’s how we strengthen the collective impact of our donors.
The 10% for Impact Pledge encourages donors to maximize their annual giving. Typical donor advised fund providers do not have annual payout requirements for their funds, resulting in a growth in assets, but less grantmaking impact. We are encouraging all of our donors to make annual grants of 10% of the fund size, doubling the level of “payout” required by private foundations.
Every donor can contribute to our open source grantee database of leading social change organizations. We also work with donors to pre-vet organizations to enable nimble, efficient grant-making.
On our DonorView platform we highlight funding collaboratives including Rapid Response funds to nimbly move resources to support disaster relief or empower activists’ response to emerging crises.
Donors can automatically donate 1% or more of every contribution to the Community Impact Fund where we make grants to support urgent and timely community needs.
Through the Amalgamated Advisors Network we connect donors to leading strategists and innovators to provide advice, guidance, inspiration, and program management across a range of current and emerging issues.
