Questions for Bridgespan

Ise Bosch

I’ve just caught up with the interview with Jeff Bradach of The Bridgespan Group (Alliance, December 2021). It was very welcome! It’s great to see that new large, trust-based sums are finally moving at new scales. Here are some of the many questions I see arising for grantmakers and resource mobilisers:

  • Does Bridgespan build technical assistance into the grants they help administer and, if so, how?
  • Is Bridgespan considering what to do about the divide they may create by such large grants? Are there safeguards for the organisations’ ecosystems?
