This guide outlines the process used, and lessons learned, by the Iowa Council of Foundation Education Funders Network in its project to examine if co-funding makes sense for Iowa education grantmakers. It is intended to provide guidance to other funders, regional associations of grantmakers, and other stakeholders interested in the idea of a co-funding structure.

With that in mind, here are some suggested uses for this guide:

  • Incorporate some of the project’s guiding principles when outlining your co-funding project.
  • Adapt the tools, such as the issue matrix, to help focus on an issue area.
  • Use a survey to gather funder feedback about your project’s process and outcomes.
