Effective Philanthropy in Haiti

The Hauser Institute recently published a new report exploring the value, parameters, and sustainability of a Haiti Funders Forum, in collaboration with The Haiti Fund at the Boston Foundation and with support from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation. Hauser Institute researchers Paula Johnson and Colleen Kelly conducted a series of conversations with funder network leaders, individual interviews with Haiti funders, and a survey of a broad range of funders and other constituents to analyze and assess the potential activities and operational issues of a forum. The creation of a Haiti Funders Forum would aim to increase the effectiveness of philanthropy in Haiti by promoting information sharing, networking, and collaboration among grantmakers and social investors and through advocacy for increased philanthropy to and within the country.
 
The report summarizes the findings and makes recommendations on a Forum’s values, mission, and goals; functions and activities; and institutional and operational aspects. You can access the full Haiti Funders Forum Feasibility Study here.
