Research and Publications


With its network of researchers, the Centre engages in fundamental research in philanthropy and offers opportunities for applied research projects.

“In merely a few years, the Geneva Centre for Philanthropy (GCP) has asserted itself as a leading academic platform for strategic philanthropy in Switzerland and abroad. To ensure that philanthropy can bring its full potential to bear on the public good in a changing world, continuing to incentivize and recognize new research is essential, both at the senior and the junior scholar levels. As a strategic partner of the Centre, we are delighted to also team up with GCP on the Fondation Lombard Odier Prize for Academic Excellence in Philanthropy, and are pleased with the results of the award’s inaugural edition in 2020.”
