Webinar: Post lockdown philanthropy – Where do we go from here?
Join us for a webinar discussing the effect on philanthropy following the easing of lockdown measures.
During the first phase of lockdown we saw extraordinary levels of generosity for charities struggling with the COVID-19 pandemic, particularly for organisations providing front line health and community services.
The speed with which money has been collected and distributed has been unprecedented in scale. However, as the twin threats of the health crisis and economic uncertainty continue over the longer term and profound funding shortfalls start to impact the sector, we consider how philanthropy will respond to what may come next, including:
- the different roles that high end philanthropy and mass market donors will play;
- the recent trend of unrestricted funding;
- the US versus UK experience;
- fund raising challenges and opportunities in an age of social distancing;
- the extent to which recent first time donors will continue their support;
- the likely impact for non-COVID charities and causes; and
- the role of the government in supporting the sector.
Discussing their experience of these issues will be our panel of speakers:
- Tanya Mitchell, Deputy Director of Individual Giving at Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity;
- Emily Inslee, Program Officer on the Philanthropic Partnerships Team at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation;
- Rhodri Davies, Head of Policy at Charities Aid Foundation (CAF), and also leads Giving Thought – CAF’s in-house think tank;
- Alex Day, Director of The Big Give; and
- Jonathan Brinsden, Partner in the charities team at BDB Pitmans.
There will be opportunity to ask questions throughout the session.
