Philanthropy Impact
The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) call for new sources of funding, ideas and approaches to end extreme poverty. To tackle the estimated $2.5 trillion investment gap needed to achieve these goals, we need new models of engagement that leverage the energy of philanthropists and social investors in ways beyond their financial commitments. Solving big problems requires more than money: it demands leaders who are willing to listen with empathy, learn fast, and lend their talents and voice to generate impact. With the transfer of wealth to the next generation, philanthropic giving will evolve to be more collaborative and innovative than ever before.
The event will discuss innovative models of engagement that use the full “net worth” of HNW and UHNW philanthropists and social investors employing them as true partners in uncovering new ways to tackle age old problems.
Questions addressed in the event:
  • What are some of the different models of engagement of philanthropists and social investors and their impact?
  • How are you engaging philanthropists’ and social investors’ skills and expertise in your programmes and what barriers and challenges have you faced in doing this?
  • What are some of the surprising outcomes and unintended consequences?
  • What is the role of professional wealth advisers to HNW and UHNW individuals in moving their clients to philanthropy and social investment?
