In Colorado Springs, a new model that brings together ten powerful grantmaking foundations under one roof is in the works. The Philanthropy Collective is owned and managed by 315 Collective LLC, a group of six investors. Ten independent foundations are relocating their offices from other parts of the city into half of the nearly 15,000-square-foot structure. The goal is to create a large-scale focus on mission-related community development. Some of the 65 people who are relocating there began living there last month.
