Who we are

The Global Network of Foundations Working for Development (netFWD) is composed of self-selected foundations committed to optimising the impact of philanthropy for development through the sharing of experiences, lesson learning, policy influencing and the development of innovative partnerships.

The network allows foundations to engage with stakeholders ranging from policy makers to practitioners, while collectively looking into the challenges linked to project implementation, effectiveness, impact and sustainable results.

netFWD takes full advantage of being part and hosted by an international organisation such as the OECD, which allows it to convey and disseminate foundations' key messages to policy makers and provides the network with access to the vast internal knowledge base of the OECD.
