    The Coalition of Philanthropies for Global Nutrition is the world’s leading collaborative of philanthropic organizations working to advance investments to end malnutrition around the world. Malnutrition is a crisis that deprives millions of women, children, and families lives of dignity and denies them their full potential. While data and evidence gaps exist, so do proven and effective tools to address this global crisis.

    In 2017 several philanthropies attending the Nutrition for Growth Summit in Milan stepped forward with new nutrition investments and expressed interest in convening with other private foundations to take collective action on malnutrition. The Coalition of Philanthropies for Global Nutrition was thus born, taking up the global nutrition challenge by marshalling its strengths to accelerate and scale proven and cost-effective interventions to end malnutrition for the most vulnerable populations. The Coalition’s work aligns with Sustainable Development Goal 2.2 targets.

    The Coalition offers a forum for philanthropies around the world to work together to enhance the efficacy of their own work, expand collective impact through partnerships, and help expand the network of philanthropic funders for nutrition. Guided by an engaged steering committee, the Coalition members include high-level representatives from The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, Chaudhary Foundation, Children’s Investment Fund Foundation, Eleanor Crook Foundation, Family Larsson-Rosenquist Foundation, King Philanthropies, Rockefeller Foundation, and Tata Trusts.

    The Opportunity

    The Coalition of Philanthropies for Global Nutrition is formalizing and advancing its organizational structure in the next year, beginning with the recruitment of a Director for the Coalition.

    Actively foster stronger relationships, alignment, and collaboration across global nutrition philanthropies, identifying and leading to new joint initiatives, co-funding opportunities, and/or collective action.
