For Engaged Philanthropists

Alternatives to Foundations

From sending contributions via mobile phones to virtual campaigns like #GivingTuesday, philanthropy is changing rapidly and there are evolving new ways for Americans to support the causes they care about.  Below are just a few of the options. 

When considering your philanthropic options, GWP recommends that you secure qualified financial, tax and legal advice specific to your situation. 

More Ways to Invest

Nonprofits cannot fulfill their missions without cash support, but gifts of professional expertise and time are also invaluable.  

Other ways to invest in the community - which may not involve giving to nonprofits - include micro-lending (such as KivaZip) or crowdfunding platforms like Indiegogo or Kickstarter.
