Philanthropy needs to change in order to become rooted in justice and equity.


Thousand Currents offers resources and programs for donors and philanthropic institutions to shift their behavior and practices towards solidarity-based philanthropy. This includes practicing trust-based giving by providing unrestricted support, directly supporting frontline, local organizations; and committing to an ongoing process of learning and experimentation.

We have offered 10+ Academies since 2014, which have cumulatively created an alumni network of more than 200 participants who include: staff of foundations, grantmaking organizations, or donor networks; trustees and board Members of grantmaking organizations, family philanthropists, individual high net worth donors, impact investors, socially-conscious business owners, social entrepreneurs, and philanthropic and financial advisors.
