New World Foundation encourages and builds strategic partnerships and innovative collaborations.

Using our own resources in concert with others, NWF is building a resilient community of philanthropists that can strengthen progressive infrastructure and effect lasting social change. NWF promotes donor partnerships for greater collective impact involving both learning and giving together. Our grantmaking programs have become collaborative funds, and we engage with donors and other foundations to understand the field, support exemplary work, and develop innovative ways of working collectively towards social justice.
