New England International Donors recognizes that international philanthropy has a critical role to play in addressing the world’s most pressing problems and can help to  bring about an end to poverty through efforts to increase quality and access to education, women and girls’ empowerment, access to quality healthcare, local leadership and grassroots activism, and thriving, innovative economic markets across the globe. NEID members are individual philanthropists, social investors, philanthropic advisors, foundations, and corporations using their financial resources, passion, and ideas to have an impact today and for the long-term future.

Mission: NEID is a community of individuals, grantmakers, social investors, and advisors who seek to enhance the quality and quantity of international philanthropy from New England.

Through NEID, members:

>>  Learn & exchange ideas to increase the impact of their global giving

>>  Engage & collaborate with other international donors in New England

>>  Inspire & grow the giving community through forums, dinners, and networking events

Through personal connections, grappling together with difficult questions, providing in-depth educational opportunities, and sharing up-to-date information, NEID is sparking donor engagement and collaboration to further philanthropic and personal goals.

NEID members annually distribute tens of millions of dollars around the globe each year.

Roughly 45% of our members collaborate with each other on philanthropic projects, and 30 percent are now funding a project or sector they learned about through NEID. Through NEID assumptions are challenged, new financial commitments are made, and friendships are deepened to sustain this work to bring greater equity, justice, and compassion to our world.

NEID relies on the support of its community to operate.

NEID is administered by The Philanthropic Initiative’s Center for Global Philanthropy.
