Forum on Bridging Philanthropy and Development
Resource type: eNewsletter article
We are very proud to be working again in partnership with the Rockefeller Foundation on a Forum on Bridging Philanthropy and Development in Africa and Asia.
Following on from our work on the Bellagio Initiative last year, we will be bringing together a group of new philanthropists and development practitioners from Asia and Africa at the Rockefeller Foundation Bellagio Center in Italy from 26-29 June 2012.
The Forum aims to share knowledge and ideas on how development issues in these regions can influence and engage philanthropists. It will explore the key drivers that attract or detract philanthropic interest in development issues, systemic factors that can create opportunities and risks for philanthropists and how collaboration with development organisations and other actors in the ecosystem might affect those factors and the distinguishing contexts for these two regions.
Attendance at this Forum is by invitation only. However, you can still follow the conversations and share your own thoughts on the topics being discussed via the Resource Alliance Philanthropy blog and on Twitter @TheResAlliance
