As the world experiences climate change and global pandemics, philanthropy has taken on a leading role. Unsurprisingly, this field is expected to play a vital role in addressing these challenges. The increasing number of philanthropists dedicated to positively impacting the world has created an opportunity for them to step up their efforts. But how do they allocate their time and resources when so much is to be done?


In 2022, we’ll look back on the past and predict the future trends shaping the industry. 


Focus on Accountability and Trust

The concept of trust-based philanthropy is a framework that enables philanthropists to build strong relationships with their partners. It’s similar to how management teams work toward achieving shared goals. During the pandemic, the increasing number of philanthropists working with their implementing partners has allowed them to demonstrate more flexibility in how they spend their grants.


Following the lead of prominent philanthropists such as Mackenzie Scott, we believe that the trend will continue to grow. This framework will allow more philanthropists to step up their efforts and positively impact the world.


Giving Collectively

Due to the complexity of the world’s issues, it’s no longer enough for one person to address them alone. Instead, various groups of philanthropists have started to come together to address these issues through collective giving circles. This framework allows individuals to pool their resources and time to focus on a specific topic.


We believe that collective giving will continue to grow as the number of philanthropists and the number of successful connections is made. This framework can inspire others to put their egos aside and work together for the common good.


Increased Diversity of Thought

The increasing number of women and minorities in the professional community has led to an accelerated increase in the number of diversity and inclusion initiatives in the philanthropic sector. This has also allowed more women to lead prominent charitable efforts.


The increasing number of initiatives aimed at increasing inclusiveness has prompted organizations and management teams to self-reflect on how they do their work. This will allow them to make informed decisions and improve the quality of their work. In addition, more people will start to confront their biases and make informed decisions when addressing philanthropic issues.


Increasing Usage of Technology

Artificial Intelligence and the technological advancements expected to affect the philanthropic sector in 2022 will positively impact how organizations and management teams work. These innovations will likely allow them to improve the efficiency of their programs and grant-making.


Artificial Intelligence is expected to have a positive impact on the way organizations and management teams work. It’s also likely to bring challenges, such as addressing regulatory and ethical issues. Unfortunately, it’s not yet clear how technology can help the non-profit sector reach its goals. This is why the industry must lead in developing this technology.


The increasing number of tech companies and entrepreneurs contributing to the development of philanthropy will help accelerate the industry’s growth in 2022.
