The need to increase philanthropic giving is taking on a new urgency. Pressure on the opportunities for and the effectiveness of charity fundraising are expected to increase this year, in part due to the legal and regulatory changes being introduced by the Charities (Protection and Social Investment) Bill and the enhanced fundraising restrictions, such as the proposed Telephone Fundraising Preference Service.
Clear thinking is needed about how to establish and use effective communication channels with prospective new and existing donors and philanthropists.
Consequences for smaller charities, with resources are already stretched, need to be identified and addressed (81% of registered charities have income under £100,000 pa). Philanthropists, social investors, advisors and others who facilitate philanthropy want to analyse the implications for their work and seek positive solutions.
In this roundtable, the panel will discuss these and other key aspects, exploring possible answers to some of the challenges posed by the coming changes and looking for opportunities to grow both private and corporate philanthropy.
Panel: Sue Turner, Quartet Community Foundation; Representative from Small Charities Coalition; Alexandra Casley, Bond Dickinson; others TBA
Our vision is to increase philanthropy and social investment across borders, sectors and causes.
