HOPE & AMBITION PARTNERING FORUM - A MOUNT STREET CLUB EVENT | 22.11.2022

The Mount Street Club Trust created Hope & Ambition in 2019, aiming to put the principles of trust-based philanthropy into practice – and to the test – in an Irish context.

Hope & Ambition flows from the commitment and experience of making the Mount Street Club a reality in practice in the 1930s and has involved re-inventing the concept of ‘The Club’ for a new era. Not just a funding programme, Hope & Ambition also provides development support to the recipient organisations and their people, focusing in particular on organisational development, leadership, practice, wellbeing and cross-sectoral interaction.

You can read more about Hope & Ambition, including extracts from the phase one final reports, using this link: https://www.mountstreetclubtrust.ie/hope-ambition

 

Three years of putting trust-based philanthropy into practice has been a rich and energising experience for Mount Street Club Trust (MSCT). With insights and stories to share as well as ideas and plans for the future the Trust will be organising a forum to bring together their recipients and trustees with a small group of philanthropy organisations who would be interested to hear more about what they’ve learned, to ask questions and exchange ideas.

Are you a philanthropist/philanthropy organisation? Would you like to join MSCT and hear about their learnings from practicing trust-based philanthropy?

You can join MSCT on 22.11.2022 (15.30 – 18.00).

TU DUBLIN & GIVING IRELAND ANNOUNCE PARTNERSHIP ON PhD | 04.10.2022

We are delighted to announce the partnership of Giving Ireland (our joint collaboration with Philanthropy Ireland) and TU Dublin. The outcome of this partnership is the creation of a PhD research programme investigating how nonprofits are impacted by the culture of giving and donating in Ireland. This programme, titled: “Sustaining the Nonprofit Economy: An Investigation into Giving Culture and Infrastructure for Charity and Philanthropy in Ireland”, will aim to inform nonprofits and government policy makers to aid decision making.

Giving Ireland is a collaboration between 2into3 and Philanthropy Ireland. It seeks to provide a platform for the sector that will foster collaboration, provide insights and encourage collective action. The objective of Giving Ireland is to provide insights into charitable giving in Ireland and support informed decision-making.

Outcome of Giving Ireland and TU Dublin Partnership

As Ireland experiences significant societal change and the operational environment of nonprofits is increasingly complex, the programme combines industry with academia to address several of the nonprofit sector’s pressing issues, namely, how to scale giving to be transformative, how to move into a future/digital society sustainably/supported by giving, and how to harness policy as a tool to enable giving in a way that bests support a resilient/sustainable social economy and meet the needs of its people. 

 

 Its aim is to empower nonprofits to improve decision making and to invest in giving and fundraising strategies that gain support from key stakeholders (public, colleagues, boards, regulators, politicians and media), and to reduce barriers to scale charitable and philanthropic giving.
