Philanos works to accelerate women’s philanthropic giving by providing our affiliates the resources they need to impact their communities.
Philanos serves to catalyze the women’s collective giving movement through connecting, learning, and sharing.
Philanos is the leading women's giving circle network, with more than 80 affiliates in 27 states, the District of Columbia, England, and Australia. Philanos affiliates vary by membership and governing models; however they all share one guiding mission: to become informed donors, to practice intentional grantmaking, and to make a lasting impact in their local communities.
Philanos helps to support this.
Philanos provides ongoing opportunities to network with affiliate members through meetings, private issue-focused groups and our PowerUp! Conference.
Philanos affiliates have access to a wide variety of resources in our private Affiliate Forum about giving circles, collective giving, grantmaking and a variety of issue areas.
Philanos provides ongoing opportunities to learn from and share with other affiliates, including monthly webinars, and the bi-monthly Philanos Comms Club.
