The Proteus Fund, guided by equality, diversity and justice, works through philanthropic partnerships to advance democracy, human rights and peace.

Proteus accomplishes its mission by working together with donors to leverage resources through strategy development, research and fund management. Our work turns ideas into action for lasting social change.

We specialize in managing collaborative grant-making initiatives that are responsive, have high impact and integrate support for lobbying activity when it will support a winning strategy. In tandem with grant-making management, we provide strategic philanthropic services to flexibly and efficiently meet the needs of individual, family and institutional donor partners
