We define philanthropy as the giving of resources in an engaged and strategic way for maximum impact and in a tax efficient manner. It can include the giving of money, assets, time, talent, voice and one’s social capital. We believe in the power of philanthropy as a great social connector and the source of many great opportunities.

Rocket Science is hosting focus groups on Civic Philanthropy in April

Rocket Science has been commissioned by the Greater London Authority to undertake a review of the Mayor and GLA’s role in philanthropy in London.

Giving in London (by individuals, businesses, trusts and foundations) is estimated to amount to £6.9bn annually. With that in mind, these focus groups are an opportunity for you to contribute your thoughts towards the current and potential role for the Mayor and GLA in encouraging and supporting civic philanthropy in London.

You are invited to attend one of the following focus groups to be held at Rocket Science Ltd’s offices at 70 Cowcross Street, Farringdon, EC1M 6EJ, on:

19th April, 4.00-5.30pm – Think Tanks, philanthropic research institutes and social investment
