Expanding opportunities in America’s cities

Global Philanthropy Partnership

Chicago, Illinois



The organization works to promote international giving, raise awareness of global development issues and instill greater understanding of the field of global philanthropy. A two-year grant underwrites the partnership’s Urban Sustainability Directors Network, which encourages the sharing of best practices by sustainability directors representing North American communities, and funds a research project to elevate initiatives that ensure low-income communities benefit equitably from cities’ sustainability efforts.
