“Community-led collaboratives are the BRIDGE between the people who want to do good with their money, and the people on-the-ground with the experience to do it.”

Everyone can be a philanthropist

Together, let’s create a world filled with passionate, empowered people giving collectively and intentionally

Philanthropy Together is a global initiative, co-created by hundreds of collective giving leaders, to scale and strengthen a growing movement. We’re on a mission to diversify and democratize philanthropy.

Collective giving shifts who gives, how we give, and ultimately what gets funded. This practice strengthens community ties, provides the space to practice democracy, and increases civic engagement—together these are crucial to building a thriving multiracial democracy that underpins all the other issues of building an equitable world. Join the movement today!
