Our clients work with us in three ways:
Individual philanthropists retain us to develop and deepen their giving strategies by providing the capacity to help shift from reactive donations to enduring, high-impact relationships.
The Annual Foundation – The Annual Foundation has worked with Power To Give since 2016, ensuring that more than $75M of gifts are focused to be as effective as possible.
“A key benefit to working with Power To Give, is the drive to foster collaborations amongst the groups that we support. By bringing the groups together, they benefit from the knowledge and experiences of their peers.”
—Lisa Rogers, The Annual Foundation
Through partnerships and co-funding relationships with family foundations or offices, we amplify each individual philanthropist’s impact by combining their capacity with peers who are committed to addressing the same issues.
The Nawalakw Culture Camp – The Nawalakw Culture Camp is an ambitious social venture created through partnerships with the Kwakwaka’wakw community, Power To Give, and a group of committed foundations and philanthropists. It supports wellness and cultural resiliency, offering visitors the chance to immerse themselves in the history and geography of the traditional territory.
“Nawalakw would not exist were it not for the powerful collaboration of our community with Power To Give and their partner funders, none of whom we would have met without Power to Give.”
—K’odi Nelson, Founder and hereditary chief
Impact Retreats & Field Trips
We bring like-minded people together to learn from each other and special guests who are experts in their field - from intergenerational giving and trust-based philanthropy to Indigenous reconciliation and food security. These experiences in locations such as Fogo Island and Nimmo Bay enhance individual and collective capacity to affect change and introduce participants to place-based impact.
Fogo Island Retreat - Convened at the magnificent social enterprise Fogo Island Inn, our 2022 retreat brought together active and aspiring philanthropists for a profound, shared learning experience that also catalyzed extraordinary collaborative giving.
“When relationships are forged in intimate beautiful places, amongst those committed to make big change happen, possibilities are limitless.”
—Fogo Island retreat participant
Nimmo Bay Retreat – Our annual fall gathering in The Great Bear Rainforest invited a small group of philanthropists to be guests in traditional territories of the local First Nations and further understand the unique challenges and opportunities facing remote communities around conservation, food security and wellness.
“Nimmo Bay was spectacular. We felt no pressure to do anything but come away inspired and having learned – and were then given every opportunity to do that and more.”
—Fogo Island retreat participant
