We recognize that partnership development is a process that takes time and is highly contingent on building trusting relationships between organizations and the individuals within the organizations. We can roughly categorize our partnerships into the following buckets, with the expectation that successful partnerships will move progressively along this spectrum.
Level 1: Providing Funding
Characterized by a funder-grantee relationship where we support organizations with financial/non-financial resources
Level 2: Collaborative Projects
Characterized by agreements to work together on small/pilot projects towards a common goal.
Level 3: Committed Partnerships
Characterized by multi-year agreements and the execution of co-designed projects.
