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.

Campaigning for less popular causes: wars, conflict and refugees

6:00 pm

The ever popular CASS charity talks are back, and 'campaigning for less popular causes' is the second in the series

Charity Talks are one of CASS' most popular offerings, with over 10,000 attendees since they were founded 23 years ago.

Each Talk consists of four parts:

Presentation – by a leading figure in the sector of a current key issue facing people in nonprofit organisations.

Response – from a top academic or consultant broadening out the topic to develop the issues and offering guidance for action.

Discussion – an opportunity for the audience to question, debate and share their ideas.

Buffet reception – a chance to meet and talk with the speakers and colleagues from other similar organisations.


Mark Goldring, Chief Executive of Oxfam.

Charlotte Ravenscroft, Director, Evidential Consulting, London

Many charities with less popular causes look across with envy at those organisations they feel have an easy time. Mark Goldring will describe Oxfam’s campaigning for peace, human rights and greater acceptance of refugees and the considerations they have to keep in mind to attempt policy and practice change. The respondent will put Oxfam’s experience into a wider framework for campaigning success, especially with causes that are not widely welcomed
