Can choices in Philanthropy Impact Progress?

COVID 19 added a new layer of disruption for philanthropy as we experienced the biggest threat to individual, community and societal wellbeing of our lifetime.

Social and environmental challenges, many pre-existing the pandemic, have become increasingly complex, urgent, and amplified during this crisis.

This is challenging us to rethink solutions and potential approaches to activate change and create lasting impact for social good.

Being intentional about the role philanthropy plays in change will be vital in rebuild & recovery as we stabilise and transition to a new phase.

Join us for a panel discussion, to include Sarah Watson, Head of UK Knowledge and Learning at The National Lottery Community Fund and James Banks, CEO of London Funders sharing insights and learnings as we consider how philanthropy can impact future change.

The panel discussion will be followed by a networking session via Spatial Chat from 1pm-1.30pm – an opportunity to catch up with fellow Philanthropy Ireland Members.
