Develop and refine individual purpose to be able to engage in philanthropic endeavors in harmony with your personal motivations, experiences and ambitions. As the program expands, it will create a community of practice from all over CEE, united by common objectives and shared passion.


Understand the mechanics of system-level interventions, so as to maximize the effectiveness of your philanthropic interventions. Through a holistic approach targeting the causes of significant problems, your philanthropy will have the potential to catalyze enduring, transformational changes.

Our classes gave me an international „helicopter view” and great insights that I use in my day-to-day practice. Philanthropy for Impact allowed me to develop a new community focused on building and cultivating democracy in Central and Eastern Europe via philanthropy.

The Learning Journey is the perfect experience for people who are already advanced in their careers and committed to philanthropy. By taking you out of the daily grind, the programme gives you a chance to ’zoom out’, focus, and reexamine your plans to make them more impactful and produce real systemic change. Classes with Harvard faculty and shared experience with peers is both intellectually emotionally rewarding. This programme will give leaders who feel ’lonely at the top’ knowledge, inspiration and energy.
