Funding for a healthier civil society: Lessons from an OSF program

January 19, 2022

The Economic Justice Program (EJP) of the Open Society Foundations ran from 2018 until the end of December 2021. During this time, and building on the work of its two parent programs (Fiscal Governance and Economic Advancement), EJP developed the Foundations' first-ever strategy dedicated to fighting economic injustice and pioneered approaches to good grantmaking for social change.This brief summarizes early successes and lessons from EJP's pilot Organizational Health Fund, the first such fund at OSF. Our hope in sharing these insights is to equip grantee partners seeking OHF-type support and to inspire funders looking to develop similar practices.

Looking in the equity & inclusion mirror: Lessons from an OSF Program

December 1, 2021

The Economic Justice Program (EJP) of the Open Society Foundations ran from 2018 until the end of December 2021. During this time, and building on the work of its two parent programs (Fiscal Governance and Economic Advancement), EJP developed the Foundations' first-ever strategy dedicated to fighting economic injustice and pioneered approaches to good grantmaking and investing for social change.This learning brief provides an overview of EJP's internal review of its own practices and culture in relation to intersectional equity and the lessons learned along the way. The aim is to share insights and resources for funders and grantee partners who are considering undertaking a similar equity-focused review and to encourage action on intersectional equity within the field.
