Philanthropy thrives in the presence of bold thinking, effective tools, robust networks, and inspiring narratives that nurture a culture of giving. The Philanthropic Partnerships team (PPT) serves as a resource to those who want to achieve more with their giving and invests in organizations that help donors overcome common obstacles. We believe that when people have the right innovations, information, and inspiration, their giving can advance equity and accelerate the pace of positive change in the world. Our team seeks to enhance and enable generosity at all levels of wealth and in multiple regions around the globe. We support programs that provide donors with resources to make informed decisions about giving, encourage innovations and policies that enable philanthropy, and support cultural norms around generosity.
