    119 We seek to build networks that can overcome these barriers. Technology is only one piece of the puzzle - we must also work on developing organizational culture that can overcome the barriers that have divided us. We believe in leading by example - which is why our partnership with Mexico is so important for our mission. It provides us wiboth an example of our vision, in practice, and opportunities for working on additional problems, such as language, culture, racism and imperialism in the a real-life context.

     123We have very little experience with funding. That's both because we are committed to having our core services funded by our members, but also because we lack the organizational infrastructure to support fundraising.

Please share your thoughts on how you think philanthropy can be more effective, more creative, and where it can change for the better.
     125Using existing grantees to find new grantees is an extremely innovative way around this puzzle which we would encourage all foundations to adopt.
