blog post

For this blog post my writing challenge was to craft a short piece that could explain the creation and value of a repository of foundation materials. The Foundation Center had just made an extensive array of palliative care research and materials available online. For close to a decade I had worked with foundations who had invested and collaborated to advance the field of palliative care. So much material had been produced, but by different foundations, each with their own files. This was the first time so many materials were available online and together. The work of GLASSPOCKETS it to increase foundation transparency and accountability, including bringing together the research and reports of different foundations. My post urged that sharing more of this information could help spur collaboration and advance fields.
