Accelerate social impact by mobilizing a global community of strategic investors united by their commitment to unlocking resources, lifelong learning, collaboration, and entrepreneurial approaches.
Global communities are equipped with resources to create and sustain the solutions our people and planet need to thrive.
TPW’s performance promise is to ensure every member leverages their resources and accelerates social impact by offering year-round strategic partnership, best-in-class global programs, and a trusted peer community committed to investing in what works.
We value challenge that helps each of us grow, learn and deliver greater impact. We welcome hard conversations, question assumptions, and work with one another to find solutions.
We work collaboratively within both the TPW community and the wider sector working towards social change in order to leverage greater impact.
Recognizing that we live in systems built on inequality and injustice, we commit to unlocking resources for more just and equitable outcomes.
We hold positive, accelerated impact as the ultimate goal in all of our work.
We promote a culture of learning, rigor, curiosity, humility, and the ability to pivot and adapt nimbly in order to better address the most intractable issues of our time.
