We are a small group of people who believe that philanthropy needs to change in order to support systemic change in society. Our backgrounds are in activism, system social entrepreneurship, and philanthropy. We are ten people from different countries in Europe. We represent activists, social entrepreneurs, donors and intermediaries. We have members from different ethnic backgrounds and different levels of class privilege. We are committed to the vision of Leap. Currently, we are setting up the culture, processes and structures to recruit about 50 founding members, who will create a legal entity. At that point, the Facilitation Team will dissolve, and decision-making power will be handed over to the community.
