Grantmaking Collaboratives

Through 12 funds, including the Four Freedoms Fund and State Infrastructure Fund, NEO has designed and led large-scale collaborative grantmaking funds, connecting donors with aligned values to support work they could not fund as effectively on their own. NEO has helped a wide range of funders increase the impact of their grantmaking through our collaborative funds. NEO collaboratives awarded more than 2,500 grants totaling some $200 million to nearly 600 grantees across 44 states between 2006 and 2016. Our collaborative funds allow donors to join forces with other likeminded colleagues for a wider and more immediate impact. They are a platform for donors passionate about an underserved issue to rally other donors, expanding the overall funding pool. With expanded funds, we can invest in long-term capacity building resources for grantees, such as fundraising coaching, organizational management and communications training, to build a field into a truly successful and coordinated movement. Because of NEO’s deep relationships with groups on the ground, our donors can more directly connect with potential grantees and efficiently engage in cutting edge and innovative grantmaking with like-minded colleagues.

Budget

As a fiscal sponsor, NEO acts as an umbrella organization for an individual or project’s charitable work, and accepts and administers funds on its behalf. Fiscal sponsorship at NEO gives groups a non-profit “home” and allows them to focus on their programmatic work while NEO manages the financial, HR and legal elements, giving the projects the room they need to make a significant impact on the world. We see ourselves as partners with the organizations we support and our interactions with our projects go far beyond the transactional. NEO’s fiscally sponsored projects have access to an entire team of highly experienced professionals and an array of services provided at a lower or more flexible cost than would be possible for these projects on their own. All fiscally sponsored projects at NEO have a mission-aligned focus on social justice and social change. We are nimble, flexible and bring significant value-added skills and resources to each project.
