United Philanthropy Forum leads, strengthens and informs a national network of 75 regional and national philanthropy-serving organizations (PSOs) that advance philanthropy's impact for the common good. We envision a courageous philanthropic sector that catalyzes a just and equitable society where all can participate and prosper.
Forum members represent more than 7,000 philanthropic organizations, making us the largest network serving philanthropy in America. The Forum is creating a new kind of philanthropic network that brings together regional PSOs' deep regional roots and connections with national PSOs' deep content knowledge and reach. Given our network's scale and scope, we can lead change and increase impact in philanthropy in a deeper and broader way than any other organization.
