The Co-Impact


Developed in consultation with Co-Impact’s existing partners and peers, The Co-Impact Handbook outlines the collaborative’s values, its theory of change, and how it works with systems change leaders and funders to support large-scale initiatives across the Global South.

It serves both as a detailed guide for current and prospective program partners (systems change leaders and organizations to whom Co-Impact makes grants) and as an explanation of how Co-Impact’s model fits into the broader philanthropic sector.

To help inform this work, we offer this draft ‘living document’ that lists the actors, initiatives, and informational resources at the intersection of systems change and philanthropy.
