Future of Philanthropy – Updated View and Global Discussions

Tuesday 11th April 2017

We are very pleased that the Future of High Impact Philanthropy project has already gained excellent momentum globally.

Future of Philanthropy – Updated View and Global Discussions

This post shares extras insights already added to the programme, new workshop dates and also thanks those who are already providing valued help and support.

Building on our previous post we are now sharing an updated perspective on some of the key issues facing the increasingly interconnected areas of philanthropy and impact investing over the next decade. As well as insights from the initial view authored earlier this year by Prof. Cathy Pharoah of CASS Business School, this includes comments by other experts based in Singapore, the UK, US and UAE, as well as insights from the Skoll World Forum held last week in Oxford. Together, these 50-plus views provide a great platform for us to build on in the discussions ahead. 

Future of High Impact Philanthropy workshops have all now been confirmed as follows:

Mumbai - Fri, 21 April

Singapore - Tues, 25 April

Kuala Lumpur - Fri, 28 April

Oxford - Mon, 19 June

Washington DC - Mon, 17 July

Quito - Weds, 19 July

Dubai - Sun, 24 September

In addition, we have also been asked to add further events in Cairo, Lagos, London, San Francisco and Shanghai. We are currently discussing the details of these with a number of potential host organisations and will share dates and venues as soon as they are confirmed.

All in all, with up to 12 events engaging with over 300 experts from around the world, combined with additional contributions via social media, this major open foresight project is set up to provide a terrific view of how high impact philanthropy will evolve over the next decade and what will be the likely implications both globally and regionally.

We would like to thank a number of organsiations who have already made a significant contribution by offering to host workshops, inviting participants and bringing this important project to the attention of a wider audience. These include Alpha Catalyst, Ankur Capital, Ashoka, Asian Venture Philanthropy Network, Asobanca, Brunswick, Citibank, the Lien Centre for Social Innovation at Singapore Management University, the Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Global Initiatives, Philanthropy Age and the Skoll Centre for Social Entrepreneurship at Saïd Business School in Oxford. 

If you would like to attend one of the workshops please do let us know. You can also add your thoughts to the mix by commenting via Linked-In and Slideshare and by following us on Twitter @futureagenda and #futureofphilanthropy.

We very much look forward to the forthcoming dialogue.
