Transformational Philanthropy in Action

Date/Time: 14 November 2018, 14:00

Venue: Curtis Auditorium, Herschel Building, Newcastle University

This symposium brings together as panellists four of Britain's most dynamic and committed practitioners of transformational philanthropy: Bill Holroyd CBE, founder and chair of OnSide Youth Zones; Sir Paul Marshall, chair of ARK Schools; Fran Perrin, founder and director of the Indigo Trust and chair of 360Giving; and, Sir Peter Vardy, chair of The Vardy Foundation and Safe Families for Children. Each panellist will set out their future vision for philanthropy, highlighting the lessons they have learned during their entrepreneurial careers and philanthropic journeys, particularly with respect to how we might improve the impact and effectiveness of private contributions for the public good. Chaired by philanthropy expert Professor Mairi Maclean of Bath University, there will be ample time for participation and discussion as panellists take questions from the audience. Don't miss this opportunity to debate one of the biggest issues of modern times.
