Joining Philanos

Whether your group is a women’s fund, a giving circle, or an Impact100, we are the network for you. Check out our member benefits

No two Philanos affiliates are exactly alike, but we all 

  • are 501(c)(3) or are hosted by one
  • engage in collective giving by combining equal, individual member donations to make larger grants
  • select grant recipients by a democratic membership vote
  • have established grant review and assessment processes
  • provide educational experiences for members to advance their effectiveness as philanthropists and
  • are inclusive and open to the ideas of others.
