About Synergos

Synergos is a global nonprofit organization that helps solve the complex problems of poverty and inequality by promoting and supporting collaborations among business, government, civil society, and marginalized communities.

We create the conditions for these partnerships to be successful by:

  • building trust
  • designing and implementing change processes
  • enhancing the effectiveness of bridging leaders and institutions
  • sharing our knowledge and experience.

Our major partnerships are improving education in Brazil, agriculture in Ethiopia and Nigeria, maternal and child health and nutrition in Namibia, the lives of vulnerable children in Mozambique and South Africa, and child nutrition and girls’ empowerment in India.

Our networks of leaders include the Synergos Senior Fellows, the Global Philanthropists Circle, networks of social entrepreneurs in the Arab World, and the LINC network of professionals working to improve the lives of children in South Africa.

Over the course of more than 25 years, Synergos has supported innovative initiatives in more than 30 countries and regions.

Synergos was founded in 1986 by Peggy Dulany, who serves as our Chair, and is headed by Robert H. Dunn, President and CEO. We are headquartered in New York with staff and representatives in Africa, Europe, the Middle East, and Latin America.

Synergos is registered as a 501(c)(3) organization in the United States. We have a four-star rating (the highest) from Charity Navigator.
