At Philanthropy Network, we believe in a simple yet powerful idea: that funders must work together and in partnership with other sectors—government, business, nonprofit and civic—if we are to move the needle on the critical challenges facing our region.

By collaborating and co-investing, philanthropy increases its ability to contribute to the civic life and leadership of the region and tackle complex issues that no one entity can address alone. With and for our members, Philanthropy Network has taken the lead in convening and connecting stakeholders in philanthropy and across sectors to advance and accelerate solutions that have strong measureable results.

Our leadership agenda focuses on three key areas: Equity, Innovation and Policy.
