Infographic: Effective Consulting Partnerships to Philanthropy


Over the years we’ve had both productive and challenging experiences working with other consultants on philanthropy projects. Reflecting on these experiences, and from talking with others in the field, we wrote an article for the Foundation Review to spark the conversation on how consulting partnerships, in supporting philanthropy, take different forms and have their own set of benefits and challenges.

This infographic breaks down the article’s fundamental points. Ultimately, open communication on all levels—from clarifying power dynamics and relationships between funders, grantees and consultants, to the that roles each consultant takes on—is the foundation for a successful partnership.
