The Fiorina Foundation selectively supports key initiatives with seed levels of investment underscoring a commitment to collaborative solutions. The intent is to set the example, prove a premise and pave the way for gifts large and small to flow to initiatives with potential for measurable return. The Foundation joins and enables corporations, social entrepreneurs and philanthropists alike to address some of the world’s most challenging issues rooted in the existence of extreme poverty and inequality. Carly contributes time and resources to many worthy initiatives including The One Woman Initiative, the African Leadership Academy, Opportunity International, and Good360.

Good360 has been helping nonprofits better serve communities around the world since 1983 by providing them with vitally needed product donations. The organization has established itself as the nonprofit leader in product philanthropy by working with numerous Fortune 500 companies to serve more than 33,000 nonprofits supporting every cause imaginable. Good360’s vision is a world where product donation is practiced by all companies, ensuring that usable products are benefitting people in need rather than adding to landfills or being liquidated for pennies on the dollar. Carly currently chairs Good360’s Board of Directors.
The African Leadership Academy (ALA) seeks to transform Africa by developing and supporting future generations of African leaders. Opening in 2008, African Leadership Academy selected 250 of the most promising 15-18 year old leaders from all 54 African nations for an innovative two-year program designed to prepare each student for a lifetime of leadership on the continent. Students are selected to attend the Academy based on merit alone. This first graduating class has completed an innovative curriculum with a focus on leadership, entrepreneurship, and African studies. ALA is a nonprofit institution located in Johannesburg, South Africa. Carly has provided counsel and support since ALA’s founding.
