About Us

What is Philanthropy New York?

Philanthropy New York is a trusted community of nearly 300 grantmaking organizations that develops forward-thinking guidance and programming to address the unique challenges of philanthropy and convenes funders to strengthen ties across the sector.

Philanthropy plays a vital role in the endeavor to build an equitable, sustainable and democratic society. To serve the public good thoughtfully and strategically, philanthropic leaders need a trusted community in which they can challenge and advance their knowledge and practices.

We are a convener and a connector: we bring together funders from within and across sectors to form networks, develop and share knowledge and nurture crucial skills to make the work of each grantmaker - and the sector as a whole - more meaningful and more effective.
