Why Reimagine Giving?
In the context of COVID-19 and the renewed focus and urgency for a more racially just future, people around the world are giving … and asking, “How else can I be part of the change?

Join our global community united in commitment for systemic change, not only as a donor, but as a partner in transitioning from transactional philanthropy towards regenerative mutual aid.
Historically large-scale regional, national, or global funders have not moved significant resources to the frontline leaders working to create more equitable and resilient communities and neighborhoods.

In fact, Black, Indigenous, and People of Color have been largely excluded from historic philanthropic funding. We need to direct resources to fill the gaps in where philanthropic dollars have gone.
Reimagine Giving is both a platform for philanthropists and a fund for the movement.
Reimagine Giving will allow philanthropists to participate in and amplify some of the visionary frontline-led efforts transforming communities around the globe.
We invite foundations, individuals outside of the SVP network, and partner organizations to join us.
