Propel Philanthropy is a network of 30-plus social impact infrastructure organizations (SIIOs) — organizations that support and advance the philanthropy, nonprofit, and civil society sectors. Collectively, we are building a better future by increasing social assets far and wide — including charitable, human resource, and value-aligned social investment capital; nonprofit and philanthropic capacity, collaborations and partnerships, the scaling of innovations, and more. Propel Philanthropy is running our annual Collaborative Media Campaign to inspire funders to appreciate and fund SIIOs. To move from half-throttle to full speed ahead, we must seriously examine ways to work with organizations that already have extensive reach and propel them significantly further.
Confluence Philanthropy was active in building the value-aligned social investment market that unlocked triple-digit billions of dollars. It also helped secure the Belonging Pledge; this involved people with a collective $1.89 trillion of assets under management committed to increasing diversity, equity, and inclusion. Philanthropy Support Organizations active in our network support members with assets under management exceeding $750 billion of assets under management. They help these member give more effectively, equitably, and ethically. WINGS secured over 600 signatures from foundations pledging to take urgent action on climate change. The National Council of Nonprofits secured $50 billion from Congress in forgivable PPP loans for nonprofits during the COVID crisis.
One of Propel Philanthropy’s mandates is to convene funder-to-funder explorations on how we can reach as far and wide as possible. We know that the more charitable capital we unlock, the more we will have to create a bigger, more inclusive, and equitable pie. The same principle holds true in many other ways, such as increasing values-aligned social investments and scaling innovations globally. We invite funders to register and participate in peer-to-peer dialogues on how we can work together with the bigger picture in mind.
