Pew works with philanthropists to make long-lasting, powerful, positive change—always based on solid research and tangible goals.

For more than 70 years, we have partnered to produce measurable results addressing the most pressing challenges of the day across the United States and around the world. Today, we work with individuals and foundation partners on a wide variety of conservation, public policy, and research initiatives—always focused on serving the public.


Our partnerships with philanthropists provide economies of scale and complementary expertise that enable us to act on ambitious challenges, design and implement solutions to structural problems, and build momentum for change. Whether advancing conservation, examining the impact of policies on taxpayers and communities, or providing information about relevant trends in society, we are stronger and more effective with partners at our side.

We welcome partnerships with individuals and institutions that share our commitment to serving the public. Here are some examples of our collaborative work.

Enduring Earth is an ambitious collaboration that works alongside nations as they accelerate and amplify conservation for a more sustainable, prosperous future for people and planet. Central to our approach is Project Finance for Permanence, an innovative and proven model that fully funds conservation projects to ensure durable and scalable impact. Through a combination of partnerships, permanent funding and local leadership, we strengthen biodiversity, reinforce the rights of Indigenous peoples and local communities, reduce the effects of climate change, and catalyze economic growth. Collaborative partners have applied this approach with five nations, conserving more than 90 million hectares and benefiting tens of thousands of people.
