OUR PARTNERS

We work with a variety of partners and membership organisations who share our mission to safeguard future generations. Together, we identify and nurture bold, high-impact projects that tackle our world's most pressing problems.

 
Giving Pledge

We encourage our collaborators to join the Giving Pledge community, an initiative created by Bill and Melinda Gates and Warren Buffet for billionaires who pledge to donate the majority of their wealth to giving back. In addition, Longview Philanthropy participates in the wider Giving Pledge community by sharing information on our grantmaking and engaging in learning sessions.

Open Philanthropy

We facilitate co-funding partnerships between our advisees and Open Philanthropy, a project primarily funded by Cari Tuna and Facebook and Asana co-founder Dustin Moskovitz. These partnerships support Open Philanthropy’s longtermist grantmaking, which assesses giving opportunities by how well they advance favourable long-term outcomes for civilisation.

Peace and Security Funders Group

We are members of the Peace and Security Funders Group, a network of major foundations and individual philanthropists investing in peace and global security. This includes participating in its Nuclear Security Working Group. Other members of the group include Ploughshares Fund, Carnegie Corporation of New York, MacArthur Foundation and Skoll Foundation.
