Supporting Countries in Transition: A Framework Guide for Foundation Engagement
This publication aims to help private funders act with maximum effect during periods of transition out of war or repression when opportunities for disproportionately positive impact arise.
Drawing on the sector’s own experience, the guide provides a tailored framework for private grantmaking based on the principle of informed risk-taking. Using an updated model of political transition and focusing on the comparative advantages of private philanthropy, it offers strategic ideas and tools to help progressive donors make the most of these unique historical moments. The guide is jointly published with the Gerhart Center for Philanthropy and Civic Engagement at the American University in Cairo.
