WINGS Annual Report 2019

November 30, 2020

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.

Impact Case Studies: Promoting an enabling environment for philanthropy and civil society

June 19, 2019

This collection of impact case studies illustrates how Philanthropy Support Organizations (PSOs) have implemented successful strategies to promote an enabling environment for civil society and philanthropy to thrive. Through eight cases from different countries, WINGS is bringing to the spotlight experiences that often remain behind the scenes. The publication also features specialized articles from the International Center for Not-for-Profit Law (ICNL), Forus and CIVICUS. Despite the challenges of shrinking space or lack of conducive fiscal environment, PSOs are creative and have tremendous positive impact on the field in response to these challenges. In this sense, this report is both a source of inspiration and a call to action.
