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.

Filanthropy* organises fun parties that cultivate collaboration for social change. Three selected, inspirational social entrepreneurs share their stories and break down how they would spend £1,000. Then between a crowd of creative curious hearts, the aim is to help each project reach that target. There is an opportunity to ask questions, chat to the entrepreneurs and mix in some drinks and merriment with networking (or friend-making).
