What Your Support Will Help Us Achieve

For the past 25 years, the Roundtable has been serving the philanthropic community by helping donors achieve real results with their giving. Our goal is always to inspire and support philanthropists with the most relevant, educational, and practical resources available.

The Roundtable’s website was last renovated in 2011, and both web-based technology and the organization’s programmatic offerings have changed considerably since then. While we have received feedback from donors that the quality of the content on our current site is top-notch, the website’s look and functionality do not sufficiently reflect who we are and the broad services we provide to philanthropists in their work.

In order to expand and upgrade our resources and content for an early 2018 unveiling, our online presence will be going under construction, and we need your help with the transformation.

When fully funded, philanthropists will arrive onsite and be able to:

  • Find educational and relevant digital content for our growing program areas
  • Access a robust search tool that significantly improves returned results
  • Answer their most important questions about philanthropy
  • Register easily for events and update contact information online
  • Share thought-provoking content via social media
  • Create a personalized login that will customize the membership experience
  • Reach our information on-the-go with a mobile-responsive design
  • Connect with expert program staff to receive concierge-level consulting

This new resource will become a digital arena where philanthropists can answer their most important questions, better connect with other donors, and find guidance in examples of excellence in philanthropy. Topics that we will expand upon include advice on crafting and achieving your philanthropic goals; guidance on donor intent when drafting mission statements and board documents; and the tough questions to ask before making major investments.

Making these changes will ensure our benefits are more readily accessible and our staff is even more prepared to provide world-class service to go along with our industry-leading programs, publications, and conferences. There won’t be another electronic philanthropic resource out there like it.

We serve donors who want to tackle society’s largest problems through private giving
