About this grant

The Global Philanthropy Forum is a project of the World Affairs Council of Northern California. The forum’s mission is to provide best-in-class learning opportunities to donors and foundations committed to making a demonstrable difference on global issues. At present, the forum is comprised of a network of over 750 donors and 43 members. Its feature activity is an annual conference, which last year attracted 434 participants and featured high profile speakers. Other forum services include on-site and conference call programs, a summer seminar, online resources, and an ongoing service of donor-recipient matchmaking and strategic advice. In 2010, the forum will continue its services, seek to build and refresh a lasting learning community, and offer its members entry into a wide variety of opportunities provided by partners such as the Aspen Institute. The World Affairs Council of Northern California is a nonprofit, nonpartisan educational organization devoted to engaging the public in a discussion of the transnational issues of tomorrow.
