Future of Philanthropy
This decade sees philanthropy at a pivotal point. The evolving geopolitical landscape, the rapid creation of new wealth and a greater awareness of how philanthropy can create social change have already led to exciting innovation and new thinking. This is influencing approaches to giving and the implementation of social responsibility initiatives across the world. Building on previous research, the Future Agenda team focused in depth on the future of Philanthropy via nine high level discussions which were held in Dubai, Kuala Lumpur, London (x2), Mumbai, Oxford, Quito, Singapore and Washington DC.
During our conversations we explored the key interconnected drivers of change, the changing ways of giving and the impact that technology has had on the sector. Finally, as societal attitudes, behaviours and commercial common sense adjust to a connected and data driven world, key questions were raised to help organisation make more informed decisions about the future.
