lessons that carried forward
Lessons that Carried Forward
  • Donors will give more if the need is well defined and urgent and the plan is solid
  • Collaborative Funding is a great way to create community alignment around projects. Co-authoring RFPs are a great way to create alignment with out giving up autonomy.
  • Tending to the new relationships made during a disaster can lead to bigger collaborative projects in the future.
  • Being open to risk taking and being generous with little things open doors to relationships that are often closed.
