We are pleased to welcome the Chandler Foundation as the newest member of the Transparency and Accountability Initiative (TAI) funder collaborative.

The Chandler Foundation is a philanthropic organization that partners with social purpose organizations to promote good governance, vibrant and fair marketplaces, and economic opportunity for all people. As a member of TAI, the Chandler Foundation is joining efforts to boost the impact of global transparency, participation and accountability funding in support of inclusive and equitable development.

“The Chandler Foundation’s team brings valuable new perspectives, relationships, and ideas,” said Dana Hovig, TAI Chair and Director, Global Development and Population Program, William and Flora Hewlett Foundation. “Their investment in good governance programming is an important signal at a time when transparency, participation and accountability are critical to ensuring effective responses to the pandemic and related global challenges.”

For a decade, TAI has been working to strengthen the transparency, participation and accountability field. The Chandler Foundation joins TAI as the collaborative adopts a new strategy focused on providing effective and inclusive grant-making support, and strengthening and broadening the network of international development funders—all who are aligned on supporting good governance.

“We are excited to partner with TAI to address good governance head-on. After many years of working to scale health, education and economic opportunity programs, we learned that we must go upstream and address the root causes, and not only the symptoms of failed governance,” said Leslie Lang Tsai, Director of Social Impact at Chandler Foundation.
