Leveraging Philanthropy and Collaboration

The Lodestar Foundation seeks to expand the overall capacity of the social sector by promoting philanthropy, volunteering, public service, nonprofit collaboration and other business practices.

Creation of a Nonprofit Collaboration Database

The Lodestar Foundation created and funded the development, implementation and enhancement of the Foundation Center's Nonprofit Collaboration Database, housed within the Foundation Center’s Collaboration Hub, a portal that contains case studies, podcasts, videos, and resources on collaborations, mergers, and joint programming. The Nonprofit Collaboration Database is a fully-searchable database that provides information on over 650 collaborations, most of which were applicants for the Collaboration Prize contests. The database serves as the primary sector resource for models of nonprofit collaboration.
