Experiential Philanthropy

Immersive Impact

PSI Engages You
In the Work

PSI’s experiential model of philanthropy creates unrivaled opportunities for philanthropic partners to deeply engage in the work they support.

Through hands-on experiences with the programs they fund, our philanthropic partners become informed advocates, connected changemakers and engaged champions who help us unlock new ideas and deepen our empathy with those we serve.

We do this through our signature Experiential Philanthropy programs: Maverick Collective and MaverickNext.

"Maverick Collective represents the future of philanthropy. I can apply a risk tolerant approach and a ‘start up’ mentality to jump start important projects for scale that otherwise may not get funded.”

—Amy Marks Dornbusch, Maverick Collective Member

With Us

To solve some of the world's most challenging problems, we need bold and creative philanthropic partners who are willing to take smart risks with their investments to drive impact and accelerate progress.

A group of bold, female philanthropic partners who take an active role in the projects they support, to make a lasting difference for women and girls. Members work with PSI to fund the testing of new ideas, partnerships, products and systems. Through an experience-based, collaborative journey they become educated partners, engaged champions, and connected changemakers for global health.
