Making the economy work for people and the planet.

WHO WE ARE

Partners for a New Economy is an international donor collaborative striving to change the way the economy operates so that it works for people and the planet.

Our vision is a world in which our economy enables nature, communities, and people to thrive.

 

P4NE's founding members—the MAVA, Oak, Marisla and KR Foundations—have
a bold mission: to support innovative, high-risk interventions that transform
our economic system so that it values ecological integrity and human wellbeing.

 

WHAT WE DO

Partners for a New Economy focuses
on our monetary system—how money
is created and how it gets used in the economy. We are exploring how our monetary system currently incentivizes ecological harm, and we are identifying ways to reform it so that it protects nature and operates in the public interest.

In addition, P4NE opportunistically supports projects with the potential to disrupt our current economic system’s paradigms of short-termism and unlimited growth.

 

HOW WE WORK

TAKE RISK

INNOVATE

CONNECT

INSPIRE

We mutualize our risk and support novel ideas to increase our impact. We believe our willingness to learn and fail together makes us more likely to ultimately succeed.

We make grants designed to create, elevate and scale innovative solutions
to deep-seated problems.

We build authentic partnerships and dynamic human networks across communities and sectors to drive innovation and improve outcomes.

Through risk, innovation and connection we hope
to inspire others to join us in changing how the economy works for people
and the planet.
