Shifting the power; making meaningful participation a reality

No system changes without meaningful participation The list of global crises seems to be ever-growing. But for many people who live with them, these crises are not new. They have been dealing with them for much of their lives. Many of these crises are the result of persisting systemic problems and require an approach that changes the conditions that hold the problems in place. As a philanthropic organisation whose mission is to create a just and sustainable future where human dignity flourishes, Porticus supports organisations and people to address these complex and deeply rooted social and environmental challenges. We are, however, just one of many foundations embracing a strategic and systemic approach to philanthropy.
