Our Story

Global Philanthropy Partnership was founded in 2003 as a non-profit organization. While not a grant making organization, GPP serves as a strategic resource to promote international giving and raise awareness of global development issues including sustainability.

Global philanthropy, or global social investing, is an emerging field with numerous players and a variety of approaches. Global Philanthropy Partnership strives to support a better understanding of this field through conducting original research, developing a network of organizations that promote philanthropy, and connecting philanthropists and potential philanthropists so they can share interests and best practices. Current areas of interest also include climate change in the Midwest and the establishment of a biodiversity museum in Panama.
