By S. Bruce Schearer | December 1998 | View Full Text
Foundations are increasingly espousing partnership goals with the recipients of their grants. There are numerous reasons for this interest in partnership. One is growing recognition that partnerships can achieve more sustainable results that other types of initiatives. Another is the widespread conviction that people in need must be central actors in solving the problems they face and finding ways to advance their own development.
Some basic elements of partnership are:
1. Voluntary participation
2. Mutual respect
3. Common goals
6. Acceptance of conflict
7. Equality & consensus
8. Partnership processes.
