Philanthropiece, a private operating foundation, was originally founded in 1987 by social entrepreneur and humanitarian, Libby Cook. In 2006, Libby shifted the foundation’s purpose to reflect a more global perspective, and Philanthropiece began the journey of “piecing together a better world” that it continues today.
The mission of the Philanthropiece Foundation is to empower changemakers around the world to co-create resilient communities. They currently operate three core programs: Philanthropiece Scholars in Chajul, Guatemala; Community Banks in BCS, Mexico; and Youth Global Leadership in Boulder, Colorado. They also maintain a number of partnerships that allow us to engage with the mission both locally and globally. The Foundation places a high value on collaborative work with other organizations. Philanthropiece is a US 501(c)3 operating foundation and is not a grant making organization.See more
