DAY ONE

7th September 2021

Building Resilience

Aligning ourselves to changes in the philanthropy ecosystem.

Achieving resilience in the face of a disaster like the COVID 19 Pandemic requires
philanthropy and non-profits to support efforts that lead to positive, enduring
forward movement. This movement will enable people to learn and change
and enable the socio-ecological system to adapt and be responsive to its dynamic
environment. These efforts may require inclusive, participatory, multi-stakeholder
resilience planning as the foundation of effective resilience building. Resilience needs
to be System-based and holistic. At the same time, responsibilities in the process and
accountability mechanisms ought to be clear.
Therefore, this thematic focus will aim at:
(i) interrogating what institutional context philanthropy needs to apply to; and the
need for philanthropy to leverage technology to build stronger efficiency and
effective systems and processes.
(ii) towards growing social capital, question relation-building and the power
dynamics in philanthropy that can bring local actors to take the lead in establishing development priorities and outcomes – building the necessary partnerships and collaborations for onward operations and management.

DAY TWO

8th September 2021

Ensuring Relevance

Innovations that fit and adapt to new realities of philanthropy.

There have been different innovative shifts happening in the philanthropy space. Organizations and communities are quickly learning and adapting to stay relevant. Some of these innovations include technology-based modes of working, data collection, fundraising, among others. There has also been a significant shift towards sustainability, driven by indigenous giving and emphasis on communitydriven philanthropy. These different movements indicate an era in philanthropy, where communities participate in decision-making regarding the solutions offered to them and are recognized as co-owners with funding partners. Therefore, this theme will focus on how philanthropy actors can begin to appreciate the shifts in approaches and strategies towards keeping with the new realities. It will also seek to challenge philanthropy to re-design its partnership models towards promoting a balance of power and equity within and without the philanthropy ecosystem where philanthropy can address its vulnerabilities and blind spots and remain relevant.

Enabling Environment

Accelerating the call for reforms in the philanthropy policy and legislative
frameworks.

Philanthropy plays a visible role in supporting sustainable development; it is
imperative to focus on the conditions where philanthropy can thrive and address
the barriers that constrain its growth. An enabling environment for philanthropy
would create, recreates, facilitates and promotes collaboration/flow of energy between
people and organizations while building trust. This trust and the highlighted values lay
the foundation for constructing norms, legal standards, the development of governance
– institutional and administrative and the policy frameworks that guide and regulate
the environment for philanthropy. This theme focuses on the policy choices made
by government actors. It considers the country’s cultural and socio-political practices
and legacies that can potentially motivate philanthropic behaviours and further the
