Past and Future

Our First Two Years

The Alliance’s first two years focused on producing the maximum impact from its contributions. Late 2010, the Alliance named five outstanding organizations as Alliance Program Partners: Ashoka, Ben Gurion University, The Hunt Alternatives Fund and its Institute for Inclusive Security, the Reut Institute, and Synergos. Thru these partners, the Alliance supported 31 separate initiatives spread over 5 continents.

In addition, the Alliance produced the Inaugural Bipartisan Congressional Conference on Innovation in Giving and Philanthropy on Capitol Hill.

Our Next Few Years

The Alliance has some ambitious and far-reaching plans for the immediate future.

  • Building on the great success of the first conference, the Alliance is actively planning a second Bipartisan Congressional Conference on Innovation in Giving & Philanthropy.
  • As announced at the first conference, The Alliance’s Innovation Fund exists to identify and promote breakthrough ideas in philanthropy, focusing on supporting proven nonprofits in developing innovative ways to diversify their funding streams.
  • Among the first year initiatives was support for the Reut Institute’s development of a 21st century framework of Tikkun Olam—the age-old tradition to “repair the world.” Alliance support of this effort continues, aiming to improve the lives of half a billion of the world’s poorest citizens in the next decade.
  • Continuing its relationship with its Program Partners, the Alliance seeks to build on the synergy of the Partners’ work on women’s issues in the Mideast to effect greater impact collectively than the already effective organizations are able realize on the own. Together, the whole is greater than the sum of its parts!

Proud to announce our newest partner


Leonard Kaplan’s creation of the Alliance for Global Good was the expression of his passionate philanthropy.  It’s also the logical outgrowth of all that came before it.  Together with his wife and philanthropic partner Tobee, and through a family foundation later renamed TOLEO, they gave unselfishly of resources and time to improve their community and the world for more than twenty-five years.

Tobee & Leonard Kaplan

Tobee & Leonard Kaplan

The Alliance’s focus on five areas of giving—health, education, environment, poverty, and world relations—is mirrored in Leonard’s past.  He has made major gifts to Duke University Medical Center and the Duke Comprehensive Cancer and Heart Centers, to the Lineberger Cancer Center at UNC Chapel Hill, to the Cardiac Rehabilitation program at Moses Cone Hospital, and had a leadership position at the Greensboro Cardiac Rehabilitation Program.  In 2004, Leonard and Tobee built the new building for the Women’s Resource Center in Greensboro. He created scholarships for residents of Guilford County to attend North Carolina colleges and universities, and was a founding donor of Elon University Law School.  Critically, in partnership with the Kellogg Foundation, Leonard helped create the Center for Organizational Leadership, a philanthropic studies program (which was one of first nationally to educate non-profit executives).

“Everyone wants to leave something to their grandchildren.”

“The money won’t matter if the world they live in is so far gone,” Kaplan says. “The opportunity now is to take some of what might become their inheritance, and use it soon to make the world a better place.”

Addressing poverty, Leonard made possible the building of two houses for Habitat for Humanity, and by providing food for hungry people both close to home in Greensboro, and as far abroad as the former Soviet Union.   The Kaplans were staunch supporters of Trickle Up, which provides grant financing to women in the developing world who want to start their own microenterprise.

Leonard gave not only of his wealth, but also of his time and expertise, taking on leadership positions in many organizations and campaigns such as the Greater Greensboro United Way DeToqueville Society, and as a Core Member of ACTION Greensboro, a nonprofit dedicated to improving public education, revitalization of downtown Greensboro, and leveraging economic development.

Active in their community of faith, the Kaplans built a new building for the Greensboro Jewish Federation, and for the Hillel youth organization at U.N.C., Chapel Hill.  He served on the board of the Jewish Foundation of Greensboro, and on that of the national Hillel organization, and was a founder of Camp Ramah Darom.

Viewing giving as a responsibility of affluence, Leonard led by example, and encouraged others to do the same.  He created Wealth & Giving, an educational program designed to inspire the largest wealth holders in this country to be more generous.  The Alliance continues that work by promoting and providing donors with opportunities for effective and efficient giving.
