The Fund for Shared Insight has announced the latest grants awarded through Listen4Good, a capacity-building initiative designed to help nonprofits create sustainable high-quality feedback loops that support meaningful change.
Through the initiative, grants of $30,000 over eighteen months were awarded to advance the practice of listening in philanthropy, with a focus on those whose voices are heard the least. Grantees also will receive access to L4G Online, an interactive website that provides one-on-one coaching with respect to the design and implementation of client-focused feedback loops. Recipients include Ability360, the Asian Task Force Against Domestic Violence, the Cities for Financial Empowerment Fund, Girls Leading Girls, the National Immigration Forum, Volunteers in Medicine, and the Wildwood Outdoor Education Center.
The latest Listen4Good cohort is supported by twenty-eight co-funders, sixteen of which are new to the Fund for Shared Insight collaborative. They include the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation, which is supporting nine grantees, and the NEPA Funders Collaborative, a consortium of grantmakers that is funding five grantees with the goal of creating a learning community of L4G funder and nonprofit participants in northeastern Pennsylvania. In addition, the Virginia G. Piper Charitable Trust returns as an L4G funder in this round and will fund six grantees. Since 2016, L4G has awarded more than two hundred grants totaling $9.4 million, enabling more than a hundred and twenty-two thousand individuals served by nonprofits to share their perspectives.
