What we do

Alliance aims to facilitate the exchange of information and ideas among philanthropists, social investors and others working for social change worldwide in order to maximize the impact of funding for social development.

To meet this mission statement, we deliver the following:

Alliance magazine is the leading magazine for philanthropy and social investment worldwide. Since 1996 it has provided news and analysis of what’s happening in the philanthropy and social investment sectors across the world. It also acts as a forum for the exchange of ideas and experiences among practitioners.

As well as news and conference reports, articles, book reviews and opinion columns, each issue has a special in-depth feature on some key aspect of philanthropy and social investment, with contributors from around the world and expert guest editors.

The magazine is currently available in print, online and in PDF. Click here to subscribe.
