Transparency Chat: Creative Commons Helps to Scale Social Sector Knowledge Building

Timothy Vollmer, public policy manager at Creative Commons, discusses how they will use their Fund for Shared Insight grant to encourage foundations to adopt open licensing policies in the interest of sharing grantee produced materials. “By adopting open licensing policies on the outputs of the grants they are giving out, foundations set up the conditions to maximize the impact of their giving….the philanthropic community can become better coordinated because they’re able to understand what’s being funded and where investment needs to be made.”
