Launched in 1983 as Public Interest Projects (PIP), NEO Philanthropy is a 501(c)(3) public charity committed to building strong social justice movements. As an intermediary, we bridge the gap that often exists between funders and organizations doing the work, through collaborative funds, fiscal sponsorships, donor services and capacity building. Funding silos are a fact of foundation life, but critical issues often fall between the cracks. In our role as an intermediary, NEO has helped funders transcend narrowly focused funding silos. Through NEO, our funders have supported intersectional work that bridges a wide variety of issues, such as criminal justice and immigrant rights; racial justice and school reform; and human trafficking and domestic violence, reproductive rights and human rights. We also help social justice organizations make the connections across sectors necessary for deep change.
