The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation
The Alliance is excited to be part of a small national organization cohort as part of an interesting project at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. The Alliance’s participation will result in the development of a digital platform that offers a way for philanthropists interested in the work of Mississippi not-for-profits to learn from and engage peers in the philanthropic space.
