Learning and Adaptation

Profit for Purpose
DT Global channels the majority of fees received from donor contracts back into their partner non-profit, DT Institute, to support initiatives that test new ideas or expand on donor partner priorities. Drawing on their extensive network of private sector partners and foundations, the DT Global family facilitates donor collaboratives and supports corporate social responsibility initiatives. Together, they have the unique ability to augment existing donor-funded programs through matching grants and provide innovative solutions to program financing – further investing in the communities where they ’ve worked to transform lives for more than 50 years.
Innovation for Good
Embedded within DT Global is a catalytic innovation unit working to close the gap between talk and action. Their environment encourages staff to collaborate and to generate new ideas, where co-design and partnership opportunities are welcomed and identified, where experimentation and testing is encouraged, and where evolving best practices are widely shared. These steps combine to create thoughtful and impactful solutions for DT Global and their clients and stakeholders.
