In Their Own Words

The Philanthropic Initiative (TPI) is a strategic philanthropy advisory practice that helps individuals, families, foundations, and companies increase the impact of their giving. Working around the globe, we partner with clients to create, implement, and evaluate customized philanthropic strategies. We fuel the growth of high-impact philanthropy around the world through philanthropic consulting work as well as cutting-edge research, philanthropic education programs, and initiatives with key allies. Since 1989, we have worked directly with hundreds of clients, serving as consultants and thought partners to ambitious donors and foundations that embrace innovative thinking in their efforts to find levers of change. TPI operates nationally and globally, and is housed at the Boston Foundation.
