Philanthropy has been an aspect of human interaction and social practice through the ages. The latin or Greek word Philanthropy essentially means ‘the love of humanity’. Although it has taken many different forms and purposes, a philanthropic intent has been integral for human history, ‘using private initiatives for the public good’. It is becoming more critical for our future world, addressing some of the systemic challenges and working to strategically solve global challenges.
At Red Sea, we align our work with the Global Philanthropic community with the United Nations Sustainable Development goals, finding and empowering leaders to reduce poverty and hunger, promoting good health and wellbeing, improving global education for all, eliminating inequality, harnessing affordable and clean energy, promoting economic growth, sustainable community, promoting peace and justice and work to care for our planet.
We do this by working with individuals, foundations, and corporations in Philanthropy, providing our clients with leadership, vision, International experience and thematic expertise.
We have worked internationally with Private Foundations in the United States, the United Kingdom, Switzerland and the Middle East, from family foundations to institutions to Private Sector.
Governments and civil society across the world need to harness these powerful social trends. We need to prepare for these changes now to make sure that people can support the causes they care about with confidence and ease.
