2019 Global Philanthropy Forum
April 1, 2019—April 3, 2019
At the 2019 Global Philanthropy Forum, you will explore ways the next generation seeks to give vitality to democratic norms and modernize democratic institutions. You will learn about the experiences of communities where inventive solutions have been crafted, ethical and inspiring leadership has been shown, problems have been solved and social capital has been built. In short, where democratic decision-making has worked. Examples will come from Latin America, Africa, Europe and Asia—as will the philanthropists and social entrepreneurs who will join you.
In the end, you may not conclude that government is the word for the things we do together—but rather self-governance is. And you may find that an investment in the processes of democratic decision-making is the ultimate “big-bet.”
After all, the only way to scale democracy is by example.
The 2019 Global Philanthropy Forum is for individuals who have made a significant commitment to philanthropy and executives from private, public and corporate foundations. Participation in the conference is by invitation only and invitations are not transferable.
If you would like to nominate other philanthropists, foundation leaders and social investors who can both learn from and share with the GPF community, please contact Angelina Donhoff at firstname.lastname@example.org.
