Philanthropy Summit 2015: The Power of Strategic Giving
April 15 – 16, 2015
Auckland, New Zealand
Philanthropy New Zealand is bringing together philanthropic thought leaders, innovators and experienced practitioners for a two-day summit that will inform, inspire and innovate. The Summit will bring global and local perspectives to philanthropy in Aotearoa/New Zealand and provide opportunities to learn best practice and explore new ways of working.
The Summit will focus on three key issues:
- income and inequality
- youth and employment
- the environment.
It will look at how strategic giving and wise investment in these three areas is making a real difference to the lives of New Zealanders and can leave a powerful and lasting legacy for future generations.
Keynote speakers include New York entrepreneur and impact investor Justin Rockefeller, US philanthropic leaders Peter Hero and Mae Hong and eminent New Zealanders Tā Mark Solomon, Dame Anne Salmond and Mānuka Henare. Other speakers include leading New Zealand philanthropists and thinkers such as Annah Stretton, Max Rashbrooke, Kate Frykberg and Rob Fenwick.
A unique feature of the Summit is the inclusion of collaboration spaces in our programme. These sessions are for like-minded individuals and organisations to find opportunities to work together in the three key issue areas and to develop action plans for real and lasting impact.
