Goldman Philanthropic Partnerships, a private operating
foundation, was founded in 1998 to establish a new
philanthropic business model to
accelerate the way
cures are discovered. This business model has created
innovative research funding partnerships between donors,
researchers and medical institutions using
five tools unique to our foundation.
In late 2005, Partnership for Cures, a public charity, was
approved by the IRS to carry on the mission of Goldman
Philanthropic Partnerships. This GPP website continues to document the successes of the Goldman
Philanthropic Partnership strategic philanthropy initiative.
To transfer to the
new Partnership for Cures website,
Here's how Goldman Philanthropic
Partnerships' strategic philanthropy model works:
First, through our foundation each donor gives to a specific research
project in their disease of interest to maximize the impact of
the funding and increase donor participation, rather than
general giving to an organization or institution that decides
how to utilize the funding.
Second, we oversee the budgets on these projects so that
there are no extraneous expenses and an appropriate amount is used for institutional overhead.
Third, for every charitable donation we secure a
matching donation, at least dollar
for dollar, from the research institution itself or another
Fourth, each project is validated twice to insure, as much
as possible, that there is an excellent chance the project
will achieve the stated goals.
Fifth, we actively manage each project and report progress
to the donor every 90 days.
