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.

The Centre for Charitable Giving and Philanthropy presents an expert seminar on current moral challenges for charities, their donors and beneficiaries.

The seminar will cover:

  • The extent to which charity's moral standing is being questioned through rarely-explored uncertainties around donor intentions, beneficiary rights and charity practice as a means of distributing welfare
  • The question of whether charitable givers and receivers are open to moral thinking

The event will be chaired by Professor Nicholas Deakin, University of Birmingham.

Other speakers include:

Lunch will be provided and guests are encouraged to book early here.
