Talent for Giving

The Center for High Impact Philanthropy (CHIP) is partnering with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to develop actionable guidance on ways high net-worth donors can best staff their philanthropic organizations. The various staffing approaches that currently exist suggest that no single model meets the needs of all funders. We will identify current staffing model options and analyze their relative strengths and limitations. Our guidance will also include key principles, decision points, and illustrative case examples to help funders select and adapt the most appropriate model for their needs and social impact goals. Once developed, this guidance will be integrated into CHIP’s Funder Education programs and made available more broadly.
