This Collaboration Case Note describes an initiative to expand funder transparency, participation, and accountability (TPA) portfolios to be more diverse, inclusive, and relevant. TAI funder member, the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation (Hewlett), and the Dutch government co-financed From Open to Inclusive Governance Call for Ideas with support from the TAI Secretariat. It aimed to introduce TPA tools to help communities facing marginalization groups fight for their rights and fair allocation of resources.
As a result of this initiative, six applicants were selected from a pool of over 300 to receive inception funding for a six-month design phase. It helped reveal new demand and is fostering new forms of collaboration among often siloed civic actors.
