National and Local Funders: Tensions and Opportunities

How can funders of national programs and local community funders work more strategically with each other? The tensions that exist between the overlapping missions of funders with these different geographical focuses can be used to open up new lines of communication, new strategies for shared learning, and better leveraging of resources. This panel offers perspectives on models for cooperation and provides concrete suggestions for improved communication and collaboration. We'll hear about funder partnerships that worked--and some that didn't--and suggestions of mutually beneficial ways to better align the expertise and value each brings to the table.
