The Centre


The Geneva Centre for Philanthropy has been created within the University of Geneva and operates under the responsibility of the rectorate. It functions autonomously and has its own staff. The centre’s activities are supervised by a strategy committee with representatives from the university and partner foundations. The centre also has a scientific committee, largely for academic purposes.


The Geneva Centre for Philanthropy is headed by Professor Henry Peter, Head, who is supported by Mara De Monte, Executive director.
