Philanthropy in the pub

Philanthropy in the Pub is an event for a younger generation of change makers who are looking at creating social impact in a fun and engaging way, in a relaxed environment.

It is a place to explore new ways of giving, learn from those who are experienced in giving and hear about the positive impact giving can have on disadvantaged communities. Network and explore social change amongst people with similar values, ideas and personal journeys.

This event is designed for those who are seeking a personal social conscience/philanthropic journey rather then those who are only working in the philanthropic industry.

Our next session will be around collective giving – the coming together of individuals to jointly fund social change through scaled impact.

Our Q+A style panellists are Lisa Cotton, Sally Garis and Charlotte Sangster.
