"The deeply disruptive times created by the pandemic have laid bare the key role that philanthropy plays in areas such health care, education, the environment and culture. The GCP – which was created through effective collaboration with UNIGE – has once again demonstrated the strength of its cross-disciplinary approach to teaching and research and its innovative way of broaching societal interests in Switzerland and worldwide.  We are happy to be one of the Centre’s strategic partners and to continue working with it to enrich our understanding of philanthropy in the 21st century."
