Home / News and Insights / News / Webinar round up: Post lockdown philanthropy – where do we go from here?

In 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, philanthropy will have to respond to what may come next.

Our webinar on 26 August on the effects of post lockdown on philanthropy discussed:

  • 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.

Our panel of speakers comprised of:

  • Tanya Mitchell, Deputy Director of Individual Giving at Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity;
  • Alison Morse, 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.

The full webinar is now available on our YouTube channel.
