The Funder Safeguarding Collaborative (FSC) exists to promote collaboration, listening, and learning among funders and organizations to support and strengthen safeguarding practices globally. The FSC achieves change through three mutually reinforcing strategies: CONNECT, SUPPORT, and INVEST. We connect funders to best practice knowledge; provide high-quality expertise to support efforts to keep people safe; and we invest in evidence-informed initiatives to improve global practices.
