Who We Are

The Philanthropy Collective is a consortium of philanthropic organizations and individuals that exists to learn, share expertise, collaborate, and leverage resources to address our region’s most significant challenges and actualize its potential. Our goal is to bring more philanthropic entities to the table. We will operate as an opt-in model, offering convenings on various topics and networking opportunities. Invitations will go out to different subsets of our overall participant list based on topic.

A Community, A Place, and A Program

The Philanthropy Collective is first and foremost the community of funders dedicated to working collaboratively. It is also substantively a place located at 315 E Pikes Peak Avenue in Colorado Springs. Finally, it is a set of programs that helps the funding community achieve its goals. The Philanthropy Collective is an initiative supported by Pikes Peak Community Foundation.
