“Around the Corner” is a PhillyCAM show that offers local social impact leaders the opportunity to share what impact their work is having on the Philadelphia area.
Philanthropy Network Greater Philadelphia‘s goal is to connect the foundations is serves with other sectors — public and private — to strengthen the region as a whole. The challenge, though, is that these sectors are “fragmented,” says ED Maari Porter.
To solve problems such as the city’s 26.3 percent poverty rate, they need to work together.
That interconnectivity is explored in Philanthropy Network’s recently published “Sparking Solutions” report, which analyzes member data about investments made in the previous year. The report focuses on five issue areas: youth literacy, homelessness, food and hunger, healthy eating and youth violence.
In her Around the Corner interview, Porter talks with Generocity Editor Julie Zeglen about what works and what doesn’t in terms of funding collaboratives — what makes funders “spark.”
