How Philanthropy Can Support Systems-Change Leaders

For those interested in the possibilities ahead for big picture philanthropy, I recommend this report from The Bridgespan Group and this one as well: β€œField Building for Population-Level Change: How funders and practitioners can increase the odds of success.” 

The reports attempt to address the β€œlack of shared understanding about what it takes to advance fields and mismatches between fields needs and common philanthropic practices.” Both contain valuable insights at a time when many foundations are deep in new strategic planning processes and so many organizations are striving to increase their impact.
