Who is PHILANOS?


Philanos affiliates vary by membership and governing models, however, they all share one guiding mission: to purposely donate financially and make a lasting impact in their local communities.  

Philanos is a national network that serves to catalyze the movement of women-powered philanthropy by connecting women’s collective giving grantmaking organizations. Our members represent more than 70 collective giving grantmaking groups in 28 states, the District of Columbia and Australia. We are a certified nonprofit corporation with 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status from the IRS.

What makes Philanos different?

The women of Philanos connect and empower other women who share a passion for high-impact collective giving through informed grantmaking. Philanos does not make grants or direct our affiliates’ grantmaking. Our focus is to empower our affiliates to support nonprofit groups making transformative change in their communities.

Our affiliates have access to education, tools and forums for sharing ideas to accelerate the power of collective giving. We share affiliate success stories in order to generate national awareness of the power of high-impact grantmaking at the local level.

Make your impact.
