Our Alliance

The Science Philanthropy Alliance (Alliance) advances scientific discovery through visionary philanthropy—investing to address society’s most pressing issues. These issues range from fighting the rise and spread of infectious diseases to reversing the harmful effects of environmental changes, and so much more.

We work with distinguished external science advisors representing multiple disciplines; a skilled team of philanthropic advisors; an in-house corps of talented young scientists; and a membership base of leading science funders. By sharing best practices, differing perspectives, and goals, we transform thoughts and desires into effective action plans.

The Alliance provides advisory services and learning opportunities that help philanthropists focus their interests in expanding the world’s scientific knowledge.

Our Mission

The Alliance actively works to increase philanthropic reach and support for science by making investments more impactful and results-driven –thereby catalyzing scientific discovery for the benefit of society and the planet.

We provide a range of advisory services for philanthropists and foundations including but not limited to specialized briefings and landscape reports, unique program design as well as introductions to thought leaders in multiple disciplinary fields.

The Alliance also leverages platforms that generate connection, awareness, and learning. We ensure that members have the foundation and tools they need to bring their goals to fruition.

At these events, globally recognized scientists and philanthropic thought leaders share knowledge, models, and mechanisms for effective science funding.

The Science Philanthropy Alliance was incredibly helpful in our early education in science and helping us think about how we engage in this space. We are very grateful for our ongoing partnership with the Alliance.
