EDGE Funders Alliance

EDGE Funders Alliance addresses the systemic nature of the social, economic, and ecological crises threatening the future of our planet.

By supporting reflection and collaboration among members and forging strategic partnerships in and outside philanthropy, EDGE works to increase resources for community well-being and transnational organizing in ways that promote justice and build lasting, meaningful change.

Shake the Foundations
The Shake the Foundations (Shake/STF) group has spent the past seven months undergoing a design and test phase for our “campaign” and organizing efforts. Emerging from a lab on regenerative economics at the 2016 Edge Funders conference, the group has continued its focus on how to “reinvest” philanthropic resources into community-controlled mechanisms, specifically a community-controlled financial commons.
