What You'll Love
It Starts With You
Every client project is custom and unique. We’ve amassed a wealth of experiences and knowledge over our 17 years, so no matter how big your ambitions or where in the world you want to focus, we can help you get there.
We Provide the Brains and the Muscle
We don’t just provide research and advice in a report. We roll up our sleeves and do the work—whether that’s running clients’ programs in the field, or creating communications for major donor outreach.
We were founded by two billionaire investment managers who were frustrated with the typical approaches to philanthropy and charitable giving. They were looking for professional philanthropic services that were similar to their investment banking standards. When they didn’t find that level of accountability, transparency, and measurement, they established Geneva Global.
With a name like Geneva Global, people often assume that we were founded in Geneva. The reality is that our company name was created to convey a sense of trust, global neutrality, and an investment mindset.
We consider ourselves architects of social change. Architects have to be artistic yet precise, creative yet pragmatic. They have to deliver something that’s original, and at the same time functional.
That’s how Geneva Global works, too. We start with our client’s passion and ambitions. We find what’s in their heart and understand how that translates into the goals they want to achieve. That’s the inspiration we start with to craft custom ideas and services for them.
But it’s not all ideas and creativity. We’re focused on impact, too. We were founded by investment managers who evaluated their philanthropy just like their investments, which is why a sharp eye for results is embedded into our culture. We’ve measured, tested, and improved, and have the track record to prove our effectiveness.
We help clients approach philanthropy with their heart as well as their head. It takes art and science. That’s how we achieve Performance Philanthropy.
