Over 10 years ago, GoPhilanthropic Foundation was founded through the combined efforts of Lydia Dean, Linda DeWolf, and Tracey Morrell. Their aim was to identify people who, like them, wanted a safe place to explore and engage in philanthropy and to build bridges with communities and individuals around the world in a way that is inclusive and empowering.
Over the last decade, they achieved this through carefully vetting partners, team members, volunteers, and donors to ensure that we are all working toward the same goals. Since its inception, the GoPhil community has identified and supported 32 partners in over 7 countries in Asia, Africa, and Central America. Under their leadership, GoPhil has become a thriving community of global humanitarians, changemakers, and travelers looking to engage in thoughtful and meaningful philanthropy around the world!
During GoPhil’s 10 year anniversary celebration in September 2021, we celebrated the incredible legacy of our Co-Founders, and their decision to pass the leadership torch by the end of 2021 to the GoPhilanthropic team.
While they will all continue to be involved in GoPhil through various capacities, we wanted to take this opportunity to thank them for establishing this organization that has advanced global equity in so many ways and changed the lives of countless individuals around the world.
From 2022 onward, they will be continuing to support the team in new and evolved roles as we work to follow their legacy with the new exciting projects!
In the meantime, we would love to invite you to hear from our Co-Founders directly as they share their heartfelt messages with our community including their lessons learned as founders and philanthropists, and their plans going forward.
