Panorama Global is a social impact nonprofit that empowers changemakers through radical collaboration.
Our goal is to achieve maximum impact by partnering with visionary leaders to co-develop solutions to hard problems. We use our voice when it counts, and initiate projects when we see gaps that need to be filled.
Panorama Global has distributed nearly $24 million in grants across six collaborative funds since our founding in 2017. We believe in harnessing the collective power of established and early-stage organizations that are focused on advancing social change and paving the way for others. We work with partners under the shared vision that pressing social issues can be addressed more effectively, equitably, timely, and sustainably through the sweeping lens of collaboration than the narrow mindset of competition.
