Our History

Alliance for Greater Works was founded in 2001 as the Faith and Philanthropy Institute with the goal of preparing, training, and equipping faith-based leaders and organizations to affect positive, measurable change in their communities. In 2014, a shift in strategy initiated rebranding and a name change. The new name of Alliance for Greater Works was chosen to reflect our priority of unlocking the power and potential of investors, leaders and organizations "working together" to transform marginalized communities. By working together, we achieve "greater works."

We are champions for those who need championing and defenders for those who need defending.

We are passionate leaders dedicated to fulfilling our mission.

Join a team of passionate professionals working to tackle the root causes of economic and health disparities.
