Why we partner with other funders

Mark PetersenCollaboration

Over the past year, Stronger Philanthropy has had the delight to work with California-based Pro Deo Foundation in assisting their strategic development. Their values, rooted in a theological understanding of the Trinity, means they have prioritized working in partnership with others. This symbiotic relationship means we are stronger when we work together.

Executive Director, Chris Pritchett, writes:

Our intention at Pro Deo is in part to institutionalize this doctrine of the Trinity in the work that we do. If we are truly meant to be in authentic relationship with other brothers and sisters in Christ, then we ought to do the same as Christian organizations. This is why strategic partnerships are one part of our strategy. We believe we can be more faithful and effective when we work together.
