Philanthropist Resource Guide

Welcome to the Philanthropist Resource Guide (PRG), an inventory of approximately 200 organizations across the United States that work to support the philanthropic activities of high net worth (HNW) donors. We hope that this resource  will enable HNW donors to discover new sources of support for their philanthropic journey, help philanthropy intermediaries and advisors find new resources and collaborators, and allow funders of this field to gain a better understanding of the landscape of the donor support ecosystem.

 
The PRG in its current form is a comprehensive, but not exhaustive, list of philanthropic resources organized by categories. Please see the About page for more details on the different categories of organizations that are included, and the inclusion criteria for each.

 

 

 

The primary category for an organization is denoted by the largest icon and the secondary category is denoted by a medium sized icon. Sort organizations by categories by clicking on the icons above. Click on an organization to get more information about their work and ways to connect with them.
