There has been an unprecedented growth in wealth across Asia and an increasing interest in supporting philanthropic investment, yet there is still a lag between intentions and action in moving capital towards impact.
This session will look at ways to create more systematic and collaborative approaches to philanthropy to effect sustainable change. It brings together major players in the philanthropy sector to share their experiences and challenges in funding across Asia and will examine new mechanisms such as Collaborative Pooled Funds, Umbrella Foundations and Global Collaborative to catalyse more opportunities for investment in the region.
- There is a rise in philanthropic collaborations driving towards large-scale change in Asia
- Learnings from current collaborations should be shared to improve future practices and increase effectiveness
- A clear value proposition for collaboration enables prospective partners better understand the advantages and potential for impact
