The Unexpected Fund: Partnering to Keep Impact on Track

Commitment by

Open Road Alliance

In 2016, Open Road Alliance committed to launch The Unexpected Fund (TUF): a minimum $6 million, three-year matching fund for donors. TUF is designed to encourage other funders to integrate contingency and risk mitigation strategies more formally into their operation by offering matching grants to other funders of up to $100,000 for pre-existing projects facing an unexpected roadblock. Over time, TUF will amass a portfolio of case studies, testimonials, and data on how funders can and do address contingencies; and serve as a platform to gradually build a network of funders engaging in this arena.
