Incubating, growing, and connecting.

Since the beginning, TPI has successfully nurtured social enterprises and private foundations as part of our mission to grow and shape the field of philanthropy. TPI’s strategic partnership and staffing in the formative stages of these initiatives provides the support needed to encourage growth, stability, and ultimately independence. We believe that this field-building role is not only critical to our mission, but also helps us connect our philanthropic clients to the broader and highly innovative ecosystem of social change.

Invest for Better

Helping women invest in what matters

TPI launched the Invest for Better (IFB) initiative in 2017 as a time-limited, national campaign to motivate and educate women to activate their personal and philanthropic investment assets, accelerating and shaping the ecosystem of values-aligned and impact investing. After tremendous success with the growth of volunteer led Invest for Better Circles, IFB became an independent nonprofit in September 2021. Through values-aligned investing education, peer-led investing circles, and a trusted community, women are equipped to take courageous action towards growing their money and building a better world.

Innovations in International Philanthropy Symposium

Creating solutions to the world’s challenges

TPI designed and co-hosted the Innovations in International Philanthropy Symposium with New England International Donors (NEID) in 2018 and 2021. Bringing together globally minded donors, foundations, companies, and investors, the Symposium supports the growth of strategic and collaborative international philanthropy. At a time when global interconnectedness has never been more apparent in issues like global health, climate change, racial equity and social justice, and the future of democratic institutions, the 2021 Symposium focused on helping funders move from idea to action and rethinking how they conduct philanthropy to meet the world’s greatest challenges.
