This report serves as a collection of case studies demonstrating how a trust-based funder-grantee partnership enabled four philanthropy serving organizations (PSOs) to leap from aspiration to sustained leadership and action. To tackle injustices in their regions and witness major advances for their communities today, and for many years to come.

The report is in three parts:

  1. Evolutions: shifts in what PSOs do, how they work, the scale of their staff and budget, and the scope of their aspiration
  2. Reflections: voices of the funder and grantees on their relationship and journey together
  3. Impact: the tangible difference that this partnership made on each PSO’s regions
