The Ohio Transformation Fund (OTF) wants to change its state's justice system from one of mass jailing, particularly of young people and people of color, to one based on stable families, economic security, and access to health care and education. It began with the vision of a national funder building a model together with local funders and key partner organizations.

Inside Look at a Funder Collaborative
  • Collaborations should be a funnel to support work, not an extra layer or wall between funders and the organizations
  • Make it easy to participate by setting reasonable thresholds for money and time
  • Play to one another's strength and approach the collaboration as a learning opportunity and not as a chest with all the answers
  • Tweak as needed - collaborations should stay flexible and change as you go
