We prefer that people give directly to our grantees, but from time to time, individuals generously offer to contribute money to the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. In response, we created Gates Philanthropy Partners, a 501(c)(3) public charity closely affiliated with the foundation. Gates Philanthropy Partners disburses donor contributions in alignment within the foundation’s programmatic objectives.
We understand how important it is to know that your contribution will be used to the greatest programmatic effect. Gates Philanthropy Partners offers donors the opportunity to align their giving with Bill and Melinda’s philanthropic vision, and to leverage the foundation’s resources, experience, operational infrastructure, and partnerships with extraordinary grantees. Donors have the opportunity to tap into the same rigor in due diligence, oversight, and monitoring the foundation applies to its own grantmaking.
With Gates Philanthropy Partners, our goal is not to fundraise but to honor the intentions of generous donors and the work of our grantees to help people everywhere live healthy, productive lives.
Contributions can be sent to:
