Merger of Two Global Philanthropy Training Programs

The Philanthropy Workshop (TPW) is a leader in ongoing strategic philanthropy education and networking. ┬áIn addition to administering structured programs designed to help donors increase philanthropic impact, TPW manages the global network of its graduates (currently more than 450), hailing from many countries around the world. TPW was created by the Rockefeller Foundation in 1995 and operated by Rockefeller for its first ten years, after which it became two separate entities: TPW West, based in Palo Alto, CA; and TPW, operated by the Institute of Philanthropy in London. While Lodestar then provided a number of grants to both entities, we persistently encouraged the two organizations to discuss ways to unify. In March 2014, the organizations merged under the TPW name. In addition to providing substantial support for the merger, Lodestar has made a number of grants to enhance TPW’s programmatic offerings.
