Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors

At Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors, our mission is to help donors create thoughtful, effective philanthropy around the world. We advise established and aspiring philanthropists, foundations, and corporations; manage innovative, early-stage non-profits; and share insight and learning with our clients, our community, and the sector. Tracing our roots back to John D. Rockefeller, Sr., who in 1891 set out to manage his philanthropy with the same professionalism as his business ventures, we maintain our founding belief that philanthropy should not only be thoughtful and effective, but also fulfilling. Our diverse staff draws on its unmatched global expertise, experience, and vast international network to provide tailored services that meet your unique circumstances and needs. By continuing to build on lessons learned over more than a century, our goal is to help define the next generation of philanthropy and to foster a worldwide culture of giving.

Strategic Time Horizons in Philanthropy

Strategic time horizons are increasingly becoming the subject of thoughtful discussions within philanthropic organizations, causing a shift away from in-perpetuity models as the default approach. Driven by our mission to help donors around the world create thoughtful and effective philanthropy, Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors is exploring how these decisions are being made, and how they impact the overall approach and operations of donors and their institutions.
