Debevoise & Plimpton LLP is advising Impact 100 London as it launches its collective philanthropic impact fund.
The fund will give transformative grants to local charities that primarily benefit women and girls in London.
The innovative collective philanthropy structure of the fund is based on similar initiatives in the US, and represents a collaborative and democratic form of charitable giving. It provides a structured platform for individuals who want to pool their money and award transformative grants to charities. The approach leads to informed, strategic giving and promotes civic and community engagement.
