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. Funding is being used by the partnership’s Urban Sustainability Directors Network to launch, in 17 cities, the Carbon Neutral Cities Alliance, which targets deep reductions in urban carbon emissions to improve quality of life, increase social equity and enhance climate resilience.
