Intelligent philanthropy: At the heart of advancing human rights

Global Dialogue convenes funder networks and incubates initiatives that protect and promote human rights. We collaborate with philanthropic partners to achieve ambitious goals and create lasting social change.

Our vision: Our vision is a fair and equal society where we promote and protect human rights, uphold human dignity, and respect our shared humanity.

Our mission: We catalyse the potential of private philanthropy by working collaboratively with donors, funder networks and civil society initiatives.
