Philanthropy in Action is a new collaborative platform focused on putting the spotlight on organized philanthropy and its contribution to Canadian communities.
Organized philanthropies such as foundations have a major impact on their communities and societies. However, this impact is not well-known and the stories of philanthropy in action are not told or heard.
Many philanthropic organizations do create content in various ways to share their stories and lessons learned or to communicate about the work of their partners in community. When these stories are only shared individually, the collective impact is lost in all the daily media noise.
In response, Philanthropic Foundations Canada, the association representing private organized philanthropy in Canada, has developed this shared platform to begin to share stories and create awareness of the unique impact of foundations in our communities.
