Mission: Build Nonprofit Capacity through Education, Awareness and Resources
The Philantrepreneur™ Foundation (TPF) launched in 2014 as a Nevada Nonprofit Corporation with IRS 501c3 tax exempt status ID # 47-1793642. For Dr. Victoria Boyd, its founder, it was the culmination of many years working in the sector and her passion and the purpose of The Philantrepreneur™ Foundation to see a community full of strong, self-sustaining nonprofit organizations that thrive versus survive. To know that others with a passion to give back are equipped with the skills and tools they need to be successful; To help individuals and organizations reach their full potential; and to work hard to tackle the top challenges facing the nonprofit sector, provide opportunities for awareness, access to industry leaders, valuable educational opportunities, and strengthen their capacity so they will have the impact in the community they envision.
TPF’s core value is education, combined with a goal to create consistent and high quality resources to build a vast local and national network of industry experts willing and excited to provide services as training facilitators and professional service providers. With their support, partnerships and collaborations The Philantrepreneur™ Foundation has become a leading resource for support and an exemplary example of community focused programs and projects to help nonprofit organizations have an enduring impact in the community.
