Atlantic Philanthropies


The Atlantic Philanthropies Web site has been designed to be accessible, simple to use and easy to search.

If you are curious about Atlantic, click into the “About Atlantic” section at the top left. In this area, you will find a variety of information, including information about our history and founder, our Board and staff, financial and governance information, news and updates about us and our grantees, and selected items from the media.

To learn more about what we believe, including information about our commitment to social justice, our advocacy support, our mandate to help our grantees build capacity and sustainability, and other strategic imperatives by which we operate, click “What We Believe” (the second link from the top left).

If you are looking for our publications, strategic learnings or our approach to evaluation, click into “What We’re Learning,” the third link from top left. This section contains our publications, like the Atlantic Reports series, along with case studies, evaluations, and information about our approach to strategic learning.

Three additional links at the top of the page give you rapid access to key information about us, our programmes and our grantmaking:

  • Regions: An interactive map allows you to see Atlantic's areas of programme activity.
  • Programmes: Using this menu, you can jump immediately to any one of our four active programmes (by selecting an individual programme from the list), or to an overview of all of them (by clicking the main “Programmes” link).  Our Founding Chairman also submits grants to the Board for approval.
  • Grants: This area gives you an overview of our grantmaking activity, including our grants database (with information about grants from 2001 forward), grantee profiles and our funding policy.

At the top right of the page, you will note some important utilities and information:
