L4G Information for Funders OPEN (archive, 2017)
How Funders Can Participate in 2017
We are thrilled to announce that we will be offering up to 75 Listen for Good grants in 2017.
In order to engage more funders in supporting beneficiary feedback efforts and using client feedback data to inform their work, L4G is structured as a co-funding opportunity. Funders can nominate existing grantee(s) and commit to contributing $15,000 of the $45,000 grant total for each nonprofit selected. Funders may nominate as many grantees as they wish, but we encourage funders to prioritize organizations that want to collect feedback from the people they seek to help whose voices are least heard. The grantees should also want to participate and have the capacity to do so.
To nominate a grantee(s) or learn more, please email Lindsay Louie, Project Director, Listen for Good, at firstname.lastname@example.org.

We are holding a series of open conference calls to answer questions from potential co-funders about how to nominate a grantee(s) for Listen for Good.

Please read these FAQ first before asking your questions via email or the conference calls to make the best use of everyone’s valuable time. Thank you!
