Launched in 2010, the Global Philanthropy Leadership Initiative (GPLI) is a two-year experiment in international collaboration aimed at advancing the role and effectiveness of philanthropy in a global context by developing actions and recommendations in three priority areas:
  • Promoting an enabling environment for cross-border philanthropy.
  • Catalysing new forms of philanthropic collaboration.
  • Strengthening cooperation between foundations and multilateral organisations.
In 2012, GPLI started a transition from an ideas and incubation process among a small group of foundation leaders to a set of open collaborative ventures that invite the participation of foundations and other relevant stakeholders from all parts of the world.
