Another role of Winds of Peace Foundation is to help promote progressive international grantmaking among other foundations and donors in the United States. Charity may begin at home, but it does not have to end there. The need for resources in the "Third World" is far greater than in the United States, yet less than 2% of all U.S. giving goes across our borders.
Furthermore, the suffering that people face in the "Third World" is strongly connected to the transfer of wealth from the global south to the countries, corporations, and individual wealth-holders of the north. Winds of Peace hopes other foundations and grantmakers in the U.S. will see those connections and take action.
To carry out this role, Winds of Peace collaborates and networks with other international grantmakers in an outreach and education effort called "Grantmakers Without Borders" (Gw/oB), a working group of the National Network of Grantmakers.
Gw/oB's mission is to work towards a just world by increasing strategic and compassionate funding for international societal change. Gw/oB exists as a moral imperative to expand strategic philanthropy and advocacy for the transformation and preservation of society. Winds of Peace dedicates foundation resources to work on this project.
