The Philanthropy Workshop

"In 1995, The Philanthropy Workshop was founded by the Rockefeller Foundation in response to a growing number of requests made by individual donors seeking an educational framework to explore innovative and strategic approaches to philanthropy. For over a decade, TPW has conducted an internationally recognised programme for philanthropists who desire to bring their giving to a more strategic and meaningful level.

"In 2001, the Rockefeller Foundation established an affiliate in Argentina in partnership with the University of San Andres. In 2002, in partnership with the William and Flora Hewlett and TOSA Foundations, it launched an affiliate in Silicon Valley. While in its first years, TPW worked primarily with U.S. donors, in recent years, the Workshop has expanded significantly to include participants from around the world.

"In 2006, in response to growing demand for the programme - particularly from outside the U.S. - the Rockefeller Foundation transferred TPW operations and staff to the Institute for Philanthropy in London (" [1]

"Currently, funders collaboratives include the Youth Justice Funders Collaborative, the Pluralism Fund and the Energy in the Developing World Collaborative." [2]
