About GLG Social Impact

GLG Social Impact brings the power of our knowledge marketplace to
organizations working to solve society’s most urgent challenges.

We provide insight and expertise through the GLG Social Impact Fellowship;
pro bono projects for nonprofit organizations nominated by our employees;
our work with leading foundations and intermediaries; and by supporting
private sector clients interested in impact and ESG investing.

What We Do
The GLG Social Impact Fellowship

Our Social Impact Fellowship provides many of the world’s most impactful social entrepreneurs with free access to our platform. We welcomed our inaugural class of Fellows in 2014 and now count 54 extraordinary leaders in our community.

Grantmakers, Investors, and Advisors

From our earliest days, GLG has supported foundations and intermediaries on the frontlines of philanthropic innovation. And as the private sector embraces ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) and impact investing broadly, we’re working with many GLG clients who are building impact initiatives.

The GLG Social Impact Partners Program

The Partners Program empowers our employees and multiplies GLG’s impact by allowing each of our 2,000+ GLGers around the world to grant a qualified nonprofit free GLG access.

GLG supports our culture – we ask hard questions and acknowledge when we don’t have the answers. In 2017, an unprecedented year in frequency and severity of natural disasters in the U.S., we called on GLG. As we sent volunteers into dangerous and chaotic situations in Texas, Florida, and California, that access to GLG allowed our organization to bend instead of break.

When you have a question about a certain subject, or about a particular strategy, you can spend time as well as personal and social capital tracking down the right high-level person who has thought about this issue for the last 20 years… Or you can use GLG.

GLG’s on-demand brainpower – the right expertise at the right time – has helped us strengthen national security and show the world the best of who Americans are and what we stand for. GLG has been an invaluable partner in our growth and impact.

Jim Hake, CEO, Spirit of America

We’ve turned to GLG in support of many aspects of our organization, from internal operational questions, to improving data security and expanding partnerships. At each turn, the GLG team provides an outlet for crafting our thoughts and delivering access to insights that shape our decisions.
