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. The collaboration will make high-impact philanthropic opportunities easier to identify and more gratifying for donors.  This activity directly supports the Alliance’s mission to serve, build capacity, and foster collaboration among Mississippi’s nonprofit and philanthropic communities.
