Background

Greenville Partnership for Philanthropy (GPP) was founded in 2014 out of a desire by members of the nonprofit, public and private sectors to develop a platform to increase the impact of philanthropy in our community. Greenville has fewer philanthropic assets per capita than other growing counties nationally and most of our grantmaking organizations have few or no staff.  By helping funders get to know each other better, learn together about our community’s challenges and those working to solve them, and identifying best practices in effective philanthropy, GPP is helping funders maximize opportunities to leverage assets and make the most of their social, moral, intellectual, reputational and financial investments in Greenville.

Greenville Partnership for Philanthropy Member Organizations:

Hollingsworth Funds’ Involvement

Hollingsworth is a founding member of GPP and we serve as a member of the Steering Committee. To help grow and sustain GPP, Hollingsworth partners with other funders to provide annual operating support. Philanthropy—from private foundations, corporate giving, and individual donors—plays a critical role in our community’s success. By supporting a platform that allows for philanthropic partners to learn and act together, we can leverage each other’s unique contributions to help everyone in Greenville to advance and thrive.
