12 Jan Webinar and Framework: How Philanthropy Can Partner with the Incoming Administration
After the 2008 election of President Obama, there was a surge in interest, ideas, and even a growing infrastructure to facilitate strategic, intentional partnerships between the philanthropic community and the federal government. From big ideas and opportunities to small ways of working with agency staff to help policymakers quickly learn and engage on policy issues, philanthropy can play an important role in advancing shared ideas and policy implementation.
This webinar kicked off a series of conversations with an overview of the many ways the philanthropic sector can work with and build partnerships with the new administration in the coming year and ways to approach these efforts. This briefing covered a wide range of approaches for philanthropy to consider, such as: pooled and/or matching private investments around federal funding priorities; vehicles to help with specific staffing needs; and support around convenings and facilitating learning conversations for federal staff.

Drawing from these partnership lessons, we also developed a framework document regarding four key value-add strategies around partnerships for philanthropic donors to consider in the months and years ahead – Leverage, Talent, Expertise, and Engagement.
