If you are considering the potential of philanthropy as part of your business model, or if you are already receiving philanthropic support, there is a really interesting series coming up funded by the Economic and Social Research Council.
The first one is being held at CASS Business School in London and has the tantalising title ‘Philanthropy – tainted? Exploring the dark side of philanthropy.’ This really appealed to my healthy scepticism about the role philanthropy can play as state funding of a wide range of social and cultural services in the UK continues to decline.
Maybe I’ll see you there?
For further details on the series check out ‘Philanthropy to the Rescue?’
