About Joy Morozov
I am Joy Morozov, the founder of PhilanthroPower. I am a multicultural and multilingual (English, French, Arabic, Italian, German) expert with over 20 years of experience who has generated growth and transformation for international organisations including, The Economist Group and Light for the World.
My most recent position was as Chief Collaboration Officer at EnableMe Foundation, a Swiss grant-making foundation that is also supported by donors.
I studied at Sorbonne in Paris and graduated with a BSc in Management & Systems from City University of London. My career has taken me to London, Zurich, Geneva and Vienna where I currently reside.
In April 2023, I decided to leverage all of my knowledge and expertise and establish my own company – PhilanthroPower. With a core objective to enable NGOs and Foundations to do their best with their resources, my work focuses on guiding and enabling them to think long term and build partnerships which solve world pressing problems.
I am a problem-solver and a strategist who will take off weight of your shoulders so that you can focus on making valuable change.

Roman Sklotskiy (Master in Economics, MSc in International Development) is a multilingual (English, Russian, German) professional in philanthropy development, program management, research and organizational development with 15+ years of experience in Russia as well as in/with Armenia, Germany, Belgium, India, Brazil.
His professional mission is to strengthen the role of philanthropy to effectively address pressing issues of global importance.
"I believe it's crucial for foundations and corporations to engage closely with the organizations they support and gain a profound understanding of their realities if we truly want to effectively address societal challenges. By actively seeking insights from foundations, corporations, and their funding partners, we can develop more effective strategies that align with the on-the-ground needs and challenges faced by these organizations. Drawing from my joint experience with Joy in the private, non-profit, and NGO sectors, we are well-equipped to gather and translate these insights. This will enable foundations and corporations that engage in corporate social responsibility, and their funding partners to become stronger and achieve sustainable change by fostering more open lines of communication which lead to long-term partnerships of trust."
