How will the study of philanthropy contribute to social impact?

About the webinar

In the last decade, new philanthropy centres have emerged in Asia, Africa and Europe and the world’s first school of philanthropy opened in the US in 2013. But who and what is behind this growth? How can these centres help practitioners make the fullest possible contribution to solving social problems in countries where institutional philanthropy is rapidly emerging? To mark the establishment of a new Centre for Strategic Philanthropy at the University of Cambridge’s Judge Business School, this webinar will discuss the potential impact of philanthropy within and from the world’s fastest growing regions.
