The Worldwide Initiatives for Grantmaker Support (WINGS) is a network of almost 100 philanthropy associations and support organizations in 38 countries around the world whose purpose is to strengthen, promote and provide leadership on the development of philanthropy and social investment. Together WINGS members and network participants represent over 22,000 philanthropic entities from all regions, mobilizing close to US $140 million.


WINGS is a global network of grantmaker associations and philanthropic support organizations. WINGS strengthens, promotes and provides leadership on the development of philanthropy and social investment around the world. WINGS gives voice to the many cultures of giving and provides its members and other participants with information, knowledge, and peer exchange. Our vision is of a strong, global philanthropic community that strives to build more equitable and just societies around the world.




Our work is guided by seven central values and principles:

  • Peer support and interdependence
  • Global perspective
  • Collaboration
  • Inclusiveness and respect for diversity
  • Transparency and accountability
  • Integrity
  • Innovation

The core members of WINGS are networks and associations of grantmakers as well as leading philanthropy support and resource organizations. Together with WINGS, the members are building a wider, more inclusive movement for philanthropy that connects traditional foundations with community foundations, development grantmakers, business and corporate social investors, venture philanthropists, philanthropy advisers and professionals, and private philanthropists.
