WINGS applies the power of peer learning and support by mobilising philanthropy professionals in the network to share best practices and real-life experiences with each other.
We serve as a hub for knowledge and innovation on philanthropy issues by facilitating communication for our members,
providing reliable information, and by developing a system for collecting data on philanthropy.
We provide a platform for our members to take up shared issues, so they might influence the policy and practices that advance the culture of giving.
Community foundations and the associations and organisations that support them around the world have long been a focus of WINGS.
Many WINGS members and network participants promote corporate philanthropy by providing services to corporate grantmakers—conferences, research and other programmes that highlight corporate social investment.
