Opportunity Funds

 

In addition to the core funding it provides to all participating think tanks, TTI provides an additional source of funding for innovative and collaborative projects.

Opportunity Funds (formerly called Matching Funds) are designed to support peer learning and collaboration. Emphasis is also placed on promoting ownership over outcomes - as a result, most Opportunity Fund projects are financed in part by the think tanks themselves. Projects financed through Opportunity Funds are designed to help the think tanks achieve their long-term objectives and to carry out initiatives that go beyond those financed through their core grants.
