Beyond The Grant

Partners for Equity believes in deep partnerships that go beyond traditional grantmaking which is why we invest in a boutique and tailored capacity strengthening program for our partners within the Local Leaders Portfolio.

We work alongside leaders and their teams to develop and strengthen skills so they can scale and grow. We see ourselves as allies and amplifiers of our partners’ work and we believe that giving support beyond grant funding offers sustainable support which will benefit well into the future.

Partners for Equity engages specialist consultants who are experts in their field to work directly with teams to achieve key milestones. One-on-one meetings, formal support programs with regular weekly or fortnightly sessions and professional development workshops are provided. We take a tailored approach with each partner.

“Working with Partners for Equity is the best thing to have happened to PACE. Our output has transcended levels projected and we have scaled faster, further placing the future of PACE on a strong pedestal in the impact space. It is very rare to find a partner so deeply invested with an eye on impact.”

“With PFE’s support, we have improved our photography and the way we tell our impact stories. We are now sending quarterly reports, professional annual reports and our social media presence has connected us to some of our current partnerships.Through the support, not only did we launch a new website, we had over 200 people subscribe to our newsletter within a month. We now have the processes, knowledge and tools we need to do a great job each day. We feel grounded and supported.”
