How to run a kick-ass collaborative funding round in 5-steps

For any group or organization to be effective, it needs to be able to make decisions about how to allocate its resources. Especially for organizations aiming to be self-managing, participatory, or 'teal', collaborative decision-making models for allocating funds are not very developed yet. This is a guide about the practice of 'collaborative funding' and a five step recipe to getting started with it. 

It focuses on one type of collaborative funding: the participatory proposal process. In five chapters, this guide will take you through the basic steps of setting up and running this type of collaborative funding round for your organization, from bringing awareness to your group culture, to onboarding, engagement, proposal making and funding.

Who is this guide for?

This guide is for any organization that wants to take a first stab at collaborative funding; or, if they have implemented other types of collaborative funding before, to try out a new practice. It is has been written to support individuals and teams who are leading the design and facilitation of collaborative funding processes in their organization.
