The Road to Successful Partnerships

How governments in the Global North can effectively partner with intermediary organizations to support LGBTI communities in the Global South and East


The purpose of this report by Global Philanthropy Project is to identify and discuss government funding case studies that yield good practices, lessons learned and opportunities for funding LGBTI groups and movements in the Global South and East.
In particular, the report examines various partnership models where governments work with intermediaries to fund and support LGBTI groups on the ground. This report describes ten case studies of partnerships between Global North government donors, intermediaries and LGBTI civil society organizations (CSOs), with the goal of distributing
funding and providing support to CSOs and LGBTI individuals in the Global South and East.
