The Philanthropy Roundtable


The Philanthropy Roundtable's mission is to foster excellence in philanthropy, to protect philanthropic freedom, to assist donors in achieving their philanthropic intent, and to help donors advance liberty, opportunity, and personal responsibility in America and abroad.


What We Do

The Philanthropy Roundtable is America's leading network of charitable donors working to strengthen our free society, uphold donor intent, and protect the freedom to give. Its members include individual philanthropists, families, and private foundations. The Roundtable provides opportunities to improve philanthropy through participation in conferences and breakthrough groups; publications that are clear, practical, and donor-focused; and education of legislators on the value of philanthropy.

T.W. Lewis Foundation Support

The support of the T. W. Lewis Foundation allows The Philanthropy Roundtable to help donors leverage their private resources to achieve breakthrough improvements in their communities while protecting their donor intent. The Roundtable is honored to partner with Mr. Lewis to strengthen America's philanthropic tradition.


"Philanthropy is a complex endeavor and it requires much more than good intentions and money. The Philanthropy Roundtable has given our foundation a better understanding of the philosophy of philanthropy. We are fortunate such an organization exists to serve us."
-Phyllis Taylor, president and chairman, Patrick F. Taylor Foundation

"One thing truly unique about America is the role private philanthropy has played in building the country. Nothing like it exists anywhere else in the world! And in just 20 years, The Philanthropy Roundtable has become the address for the boldest, most innovative thinking on making one's personal giving really count."
-Roger Hertog, former Vice Chairman, Alliance Bernstein
