netFWD › Who we are
netFWD is a global network of foundations committed to optimising the impact of philanthropy for development. The Network spans 5 continents and brings together foundations and associate organisations from over 15 different countries.
netFWD’s mission is to support foundations in their efforts to dialogue and partner with governments. Why? We believe that bringing foundations and governments closer together delivers far greater development outcomes.
The OECD Development Centre officially launched the Network of Foundations Working for Development (netFWD) in October 2012, recognising the increasing role foundations play in the development arena, the innovative practices emerging from the philanthropic sector and the demand for an effective platform for co-operation and exchange.
