When you share your knowledge you open a world of possibilities. #OpenForGoodOpen For Good is our call to action for foundations to learn from and share with their peers. Whether you are reading published reports on IssueLab, or exploring funder insights on GrantCraft, or digging into examples of foundation transparency on Glasspockets, you benefit from shared knowledge.

And, when you share more of what you do and how you do it, you create momentum that makes knowledge sharing a regular part of doing business. The more you share your foundation's work, the greater the opportunities to make all our efforts more effective and farther reaching.
