We look what philanthropists can take from this research for their foundation’s funding practices throughout the year.

Could this be the world’s largest philanthropy forum?

Beginning in 2017, the Talking Philanthropy forum has provided a platform for philanthropic discussion over the last four years.

New report demonstrates how philanthropists can use their funding to challenge the status quo

A new report looks into funding programmes designed in 2020 and how they have (or have not) reached organisations led by black people and communities experiencing racial injustice. The report gives a number of recommendations funders and funding organisations can implement to redress the balance and serves as a reminder of the vital role philanthropy can play in challenging the status quo.
