In order to maximize the use of our limited resources and make sure our grantmaking has the greatest possible impact, we are connected to several other organizations through formal and informal links. Through these collaborations, we identify new members/donors of VGIF, secure assistance with outreach and oversight efforts, improve our knowledge of evaluation efforts, and expand our understanding of the environment in which we operate.
Sharing knowledge, skills, tools and systems with other grantmaking organizations is also key to succeeding in our efforts to empower women and girls.
