The Philanthropic Collection™ is a boutique social enterprise,
where we tailor haute-couture brands for philanthropy.
The allure of The Philanthropic Collection™ did not start because we wanted to continue doing business as usual.
It began because it is distinctively on trend.
We did not want to replicate the passé charity trade, but instead focus as much of our artistry on advancing each other,
as we do on advancing industries and technologies.
With its unlimited direction firmly set in the global trend of social innovation,
The Philanthropic Collection™ – a one of a kind on the African Continent – was founded by Pioneering Philanthropist, Ali Gregg.
To display these Creations, The Philanthropic Collection™ attracted a team of inspirational innovators, thinkers and dreamers,
who came together to use their for-profit attire, to shape a new world.
Our Signature Annual Winter Collection, The CEO SleepOut™, in 2015 collected over R26m in one night.
And that was our ambitious debut….
Our Quest at The Philanthropic Collection™ is to engage business as a force good.
We courageously aim to get leaders’ heart- and mind-sets into the change-room,
and call on those with financial and social influence to redress humankind.
We’re on a crusade to get those seated in the front row to unveil the bold, new vogue and the fashion of giving.
The Philosophy behind our Quest is inspired by activist, Dan Pallotta, who said, “The way we think about charity is dead wrong.”
For years, for-profits were rewarded for reaching big commercial goals, even if they came with large overheads,
while non-profits were expected to achieve great change, without dipping into the bottom line.
Our Philosophy is that it’s time to approach philanthropy with the same pattern as we do mainstream business,
and focus on mending the world, instead of simply keeping expenses low.
We believe that these big goals begin with daring dreams, because dreams keep us young, while achievements keep us old.
So we dare to dream in every dimension; an extraordinary blend of big imagination and minute detail,
provided they all foster human kindness.
