LearnPhilanthropy is a network of people from all parts of philanthropy who are working together to create a stronger, more rational, and less fragmented system for grantmaker learning than we have today. The vision we have is for a coordinated and field wide system for grantmaker learning that:

  • Links learners and providers
  • Supports knowledge-sharing and peer exchange
  • Allows individuals and organizations to create learning pathways
  • Provides access to a dynamic catalog of learning resources
  • Supports cultural change in the field about the value of learning
The work is guided by a ten-member planning committee whose members represent both learning providers and foundations. Financial underwriting is provided by the Forum of Regional Associations of Grantmakers and the Council on Foundations, with support from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
