Philanthropy Forward

Chandler Foundation’s Giving Compass collection, Philanthropy Forward, includes articles, profiles, and thought leadership content, including from Chandler Foundation’s annual signature magazine, Social Investor. Equal parts Vanity Fair and Foreign AffairsSocial Investor features insights and trends related to making social investing and philanthropy more impactful. It shares stories and lessons, challenges conventional wisdom, and imagines the possibilities unleashed by collaboration.

The Chandler Foundation works to catalyse prosperity and build economic opportunity using governments and markets as key levers for social progress. Our twenty-plus year journey in philanthropy has given us first-hand experience of the sector’s strengths and limitations. We’ve seen that governments and markets—not philanthropy—play the most important roles in determining a country’s prosperity. That’s why the Chandler Foundation invests to make governments and markets work better— in areas such as good governance, social mobility, and equality. We believe how philanthropists operate matters as much as where they invest. We strive for systems level change, and work in multi-sector partnerships to shift the conditions that hold a problem in place.
