I am most excited about the connections PSFG is helping me make with colleagues across the field as well as how much I am learning through tele-briefings and other thematic events. I am encouraged by the prospect of a larger, stronger platform for foundations and grantees that are looking to effect meaningful change in the US and internationally.
As we have seen across many issues – human rights, education, environment, social justice – civil society and philanthropy work best when a broad range of people and organizations work together, learn from one another and share information. The stakes could not be higher than the peace and security on our planet. PSFG offers a critical meeting place for practitioners, activists, philanthropists and policy makers to work together to achieve common goals.
