Funding Mechanism Spiderweb Tool

Funding Systems Change initiative - Funding Mechanism Spiderweb Tool

This tool was developed by a working group of the Funding Systems Change initiative composed by foundations and social innovators. Its purpose is to help foundations reflect on their funding mechanisms across different dimensions in the funding cycle. These include dimensions whose relevance or implications may not be obvious from the point of view of the foundation, but were surfaced as highly impactful for partner organisations and project holders. By filling out this spiderweb, you can reflect on a specific funding mechanism, and for example understand better why it works so well, surface assumptions, name potential challenges or uncover alternatives.
