A philanthropic portfolio or profile refers to a comprehensive overview of an individual, family, or organization’s charitable giving and philanthropic activities. It provides insights into their philanthropic values, goals, strategies, and the impact they seek to achieve through their charitable endeavors. Philanthropic profiles are often created to help potential partners or beneficiaries understand the motivations and preferences of the philanthropic entity in question.
A typical philanthropic profile may include the following elements:
- Mission and Vision: A clear statement of the overarching purpose and aspirations of the philanthropic entity.
- Giving History: A summary of past charitable contributions, donations, and grants made by the entity, including the causes and organizations supported.
- Areas of Interest: An outline of the specific issues or causes the philanthropic entity is most interested in supporting. This could include education, healthcare, environmental conservation, social justice, poverty alleviation, arts and culture, etc.
- Grantmaking Approach: Details on the strategies, methods, and criteria used to select and fund projects or organizations.
- Partnerships: Information about existing partnerships with other nonprofits, foundations, or corporations.
- Funding Capacity: An overview of the entity’s financial resources available for philanthropy.
- Success Stories: Examples of successful projects or initiatives funded by the philanthropic entity, along with their outcomes and impact.
- Contact Information: How interested parties can get in touch for potential collaborations or funding requests.

At whatever level of philanthropy, you might face some resource limitations – maybe you don’t have as much money as you would want to give or enough time to engage those in need. MavenCORE pairs you up with several other givers boosting the money raised collectively. Also, as a dedicated shared philanthropy platform, we can dedicate time to evaluate projects and document the progress of every project that you help fund.
Your giving will have maximum impact and you will get a clear record.
