Conference Description

Anchored on its theme “Re-engineering Philanthropy” the virtual conference will accelerate calls for the philanthropy eco-system to build resilience by aligning to changes in the philanthropy ecosystem and climate, ensure relevance through establishing innovations that fit and adapt to new realities of philanthropy and creating an enabling environment for philanthropy to thrive.
