About this event

Join us to discuss the shifting of power as new voices enter philanthropy over the next 10 years.

Funders are becoming increasingly alert to the imbalance of power inherent in many funding relationships. Part of the response to this has been a rise in more participatory approaches to funding practice, seeking hand over control of grant-making decisions to people and communities, bringing new voices and perspectives to philanthropy.

Alongside this, we are living through the largest transfer of wealth in history, as wealth passes from ‘Baby Boomers’ (born 1946 – 1964) to their children and grandchildren. $15 trillion worldwide is predicted to pass between generations by 2030. As family philanthropy enters a new era, these new voices may bring different approaches and a new focus for where to give their money. Done well, the integration of younger generations into family philanthropy can build upon the skills and knowledge of each generation to strengthen philanthropic impact.

At this free online event you will hear from Joe Doran, Action Inquiry Manager at the Lankelly Chase Foundation, Juliet Agnew, Head of Philanthropy Service at Barclays and Sarah Denselow, NPC’s Principal for Effective Philanthropy, on philanthropy and power, new perspectives and the next generation of philanthropists. This will be followed by Q&A on maximising the opportunities and minimising the risks to effective philanthropy to 2030 and beyond.

We are actively working to improve the accessibility of our online and in-person events. As part of our commitment, for all online events we use live closed captions and upload the recordings to YouTube which has the capability to select subtitles. For in-person events we strive to use accessible venues. If you have any additional accessibility requirements that we can assist with, please email us at Events@thinkNPC.org.
