Why collective philanthropy?
We believe in philanthropy working together as a driver of change, and are committed to harnessing the power of collective partnerships with philanthropists, organizations and governments.
We’re not content with giving that hopes for change – good intentions aren’t enough in today’s fast changing global landscape. That’s why we’re constantly looking for ways to achieve better social and environmental outcomes – by giving strategically.
Similarly, we’re not satisfied with the resources available to drive change – we seek to mobilize more private capital and support its effective and efficient implementation, to address some of the most critical challenges of our time.
Connecting individuals together around strategic aspiration, practice and collective impact, is the future of philanthropic funding. Your philanthropy can be effective on its own, but by pooling funds and expertise with fellow philanthropists and delivering aligned outcomes, you reinforce each other’s efforts, and achieve exponentially more impact.
“After 16 years of working in philanthropy, I can honestly say that there is nothing more inspiring and fulfilling than seeing your philanthropy drive impact that has the potential to solve problems at scale. But this can only happen when we work together. Which is why we are delighted to offer our clients the unique opportunity to join our collectives, to work alongside peers and expert practitioners, to achieve systemic change in some of the most complex issues of our time.”
