GrantCraft is embarking on a new chapter. After three years of being a collaborative project of the Foundation Center in New York and the European Foundation Centre in Brussels, GrantCraft will continue to grow as a global resource managed solely by the Foundation Center beginning 1 April. The European Foundation Centre has decided to focus its resources on face-to-face learning programmes specifically targeted to their members, and it was mutually agreed that GrantCraft integrates seamlessly into the Foundation Center’s efforts to empower donors with knowledge tools.
There is a lot of talk about collaboration in the philanthropy sector, but what is the experience really like? In their joint article in the just-published March issue of Alliance, ‘Lessons from a transatlantic partnership’, Foundation Center president Brad Smith and European Foundation Centre CEO Gerry Salole take an honest look at this three-year cross-continental collaboration, now coming to end.
