The P&G Alumni Foundation is seeking application from organisations to improve quality of life by economically empowering individuals in need to achieve greater financial independence and economic well-being for themselves, their families and their communities around the world.

Additionally, the Foundation plans to facilitate communication and the sharing of best practices among Alumni actively involved in any philanthropic endeavours.

Now in their 15th year of grant-making, they encourage a charitable organization to apply if their mission aligns with the Foundation’s mission of economic empowerment and a P&G Alum is actively and meaningfully involved.
