Philanthropic Partnerships

About

Pew welcomes the opportunity to collaborate with individual philanthropists and foundations. For more than six decades, Pew has developed creative ideas and taken calculated risks—leading to policies that have improved people’s lives in tangible ways around the globe. Our experience has taught us that while public-spirited individuals and organizations can develop lasting solutions to the great challenges facing the world, they can achieve even greater success when they come together, share knowledge and leverage resources.

We invite donors to work alongside us on the projects they choose to support. Philanthropists can decide to fund a project directly, pool funds in a limited partnership such as Global Ocean Legacy or participate in a consortium such as the Voter Information Project. Donors may also choose Pew as a funding platform from which to pursue their own philanthropic goals using our planning and evaluation expertise to guide and ensure maximum return on investment.

Using Your Philanthropic Investment Strategically

Partnering with Pew affords donors access to experts, infrastructure, and experience, and a close view of advocacy efforts at the state, federal, and international levels. Pew follows a meticulous planning and development process that relies on extensive research to frame issues and identify the most effective course of action to achieve our goals. We work hand-in-hand with donors as we conceive and execute projects. 

We invite you to join us. To discuss opportunities for collaboration with Pew, please contact Sally O’Brien, Senior Vice President for Philanthropic Partnerships at sobrien@pewtrusts.org or by phone at 202.540.6525.

The Pew board of directors values each funding partnership as an opportunity to collaborate with philanthropic leaders in pursuit of concrete results that will promote the public good. Rebecca W. Rimel, President and CEO, The Pew Charitable Trusts
