Unlike For-Profits, Nonprofits Succeed by Sharing the Work and the Glory
Over the past century, almost all the compelling examples of philanthropic impact involve multiple grant makers, nonprofits and other organizations working together toward common goals. Think of the campaign against tuberculosis a century ago involving foundations, nonprofits and insurance companies. Or think of the work by so many on gay rights in recent decades.
Big progress against tough challenges requires a lot of effective organizations working together.
