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.

Plan for Shared Space/Shared Services at International News Center

The London-based Institute for War and Peace Reporting (IWPR) was occupying a building that had been donated to the organization. The building had excess space that was under-utilized and not programmatically aligned. Lodestar provided a technical assistance grant to IWPR for an office-sharing consultant who assisted IWPR to develop a vision of turning the building into the Centre for Crisis Reporting.  Currently, leading human rights and media development groups live together to enhance partnership, provide training/exchange facilities, and establish collaborative media productions, joint events and other activities to increase impact.
