Using our insight, influence and experience, we are campaigning for world changing philanthropy. We challenge barriers to giving across the world and explore the key themes of future technology, sustainable development and laying a secure groundwork for giving in emerging economies.

Our policy experts also host regular podcasts to discuss issues facing civil society. We also have a global philanthropic network and decades of international giving knowledge.


Currently our key themes are future technology and philanthropy, building frameworks for effective giving and mobilizing the new middle class in emerging markets to give.
