This chapter provides an overview of funding collaboratives, groups of individual or institutional donors and investors who share a common interest, pool funds, knowledge, and/or other resources to support social-purpose activities. Such groups typically include a meaningful degree of social interaction over the uses of pooled resources and some mechanism for joint or coordinated decision-making in the allocation of these resources. Funding collaboratives include giving circles and angel investor networks, as well as groups of institutions that sometimes collaborate across sectors. The chapter discusses the key variants, scope and scale, rationale, basic mechanics, operational challenges, and impact of these funding and investing collaboratives.
