For decades to come, 2020 will represent the year during which the world shifted into a new normal by being forced to adapt to a global pandemic. WINGS adapted to the challenge, offering spaces for sharing and coming together to our members at a time of great uncertainty and challenge. The year 2020 marked 20 years of us serving the global philanthropy field. We invite you to celebrate this important year for WINGS, our 20th anniversary. We feel energised to start this new cycle. A new cycle in which we are better positioned than ever to make a difference in critical times.

It is vital to be clear about the terms used in the philanthropy support ecosystem (PSE). Many words in philanthropy have imprecise meanings that lead to different understandings. In this study, we seek to build a standard terminology of PSE terms and PSO organisations so that findings may be intelligible, both within the PSE and outside it.
How to Build the Philanthropy Support Ecosystem (PSE) Working it out Together: Engaging Philanthropy Actors in Mapping and Strengthening their own EcosystemSeptember 8, 2021
This document offers a step-by-step guide on how to build the PSE. A four-stage process is suggested to map the PSE:1. Develop a team of people to undertake the work and to set objectives.2. Adapt the method to local circumstances by assembling key reports and talking to people with a good knowledge of the sector.3. Map the organisations and functions of the PSE and assess the relationships between them.4. Develop the vision for the PSE and decide on practical measures on how to pursue it.This should be treated as an outline guide to be used creatively, depending on local context. The process will depend on the resources available, which include time as well as money. This should be seen as a creative and organic process of development, rather than a fixed and mechanical project. The guide gives an organisational framework, as compared to a blueprint.
This research shows how Philanthropy Support Organisations (PSOs) contribute to long-term social change by examining their purposes, functions, and impact. While the full research report is long, we have prepared this 'sneak peek', so that you can see the main takeaways easily.The research shows how to build a robust Philanthropy Support Ecosystem (PSE) to unlock the potential of philanthropy. It uses a suite of tools and approaches adaptable to different countries. Results will enable domestic foundations and donors, existing PSO leaders and other stakeholders to build the ecosystem they want.
This study examines philanthropy support organisations (PSOs) in India, Russia and Kenya, to understand their role in driving the growth and development of philanthropy, giving, and private social investment in these countries. The study examines the development of the sector in each country, by assessing its size, scope and other characteristics. There is some attempt to understand the individual and collective impact of PSOs in each country.
Measuring the added value of the PSE is an integral feature of strengthening it. Measurement involves using five-point scales to assess the attainment of the 4Cs – capacity, capability, connection, and credibility. A variety of statistical methods are suggested to accomplish this. The results in this document will enable people to decide what action to take to enhance the PSE in their country.
The guide shows how a philanthropy support ecosystem can be built. It uses a suite of tools and approaches that can be adapted by people in different countries to build the system that they want, by mapping relationships between organisations and sorting out who does what in order to lift up philanthropy. It is designed to allow for creativity and invention. The goal is to inspire the field by suggesting ways in which its work can be enhanced, rather than providing hard and fast rules. Although specific steps are suggested, these do not imply a rigid process that needs to be followed. Action depends on the context and the particular needs of the philanthropic sector.
The Cultures of Giving working group started in January 2018. Its work is a continuation of a series of efforts underway since 2010 when WINGS published its report on global philanthropy. The main conclusion of that report was that global philanthropy is not the model that existed in some of the industrial countries and propagated through grantmaking to therest of the world, but a tapestry of practices from around the world that are diverse, with similarities and differences, and yet forms a rich mosaic of the practices reflecting local cultures and practices.
This report has been prepared for the WINGS Cultures of Giving Working Group by Roman Sklotskiy from the Center for Philanthropy Development of the Vladimir Potanin Foundation. The WINGS Cultures of Giving Working Group explores and shares the many different types and ways philanthropy exists in the WINGS network as well as the diverse cultures of giving around the world.
Looking back at what we were able to achieve together as a global network, as a community of changemakers and thought leaders in philanthropy in 2019, seems like a world away. Although nothing could have prepared us for what would unfold in 2020, retrospectively, it feels like what we did in 2019 and the strategic directions we decided to pursue were the right ones. They've put us in a position to play an even more important role in a new global landscape where international coordination, advocacy, bridge-building and ecosystems strengthening for sustainable civil society resourcing has never been needed as much.
