Funders

We work with funders to ensure effective philanthropy and innovative grant giving.

We partner with funders to support effective philanthropy, innovative grant-giving and robust programme impact evaluation.

As specialists in systems-led strategic consultancy, we work with foundations and funders to co-design holistic grant-giving programmes that take a systems approach to social problems. This strengthens the wider movement around an issue, enabling grantees to create broader impact.

We offer bespoke support with planning and evaluation too, helping funders engage with communities, put people with lived experience at the heart of the grant-making process, and understand the impact their money is making.

As a funder, we’re interested in finding models that are the most appropriate to support work that isn’t always supported. The Social Change Agency has helped us to reach areas and communities that have been the most affected by the barriers of traditional funding models.

When funders need support to launch new ways of reaching communities, we can research, create and run them. And through our Losing Control in Funding and Commissioning community of practice, we’ve created spaces and events for trusts, foundations and commissioners to share ideas and talk about challenges with total confidence. 

Through our grant management service, we help trusts, foundations and philanthropists get money to grassroots movements in a safe and transparent way.
