November 24: International panel discussion on Grantmaking & Systemic Change

Hand touching water that ripplesDonors have been making substantial grants to local and international development program for decades and although some donors offer multiyear support, the majority of donors only offer up to 3 years of funding.

The webinar will look at the funding of systems change program, programs that seek to bridge the divides of race, ethnicity, gender and socioeconomic class — and question how best to fund long term initiatives such as these for best effect.

Is it time to challenge the 3-year funding cycle and ask, how can we share a common timeframe?

Please join the discussion, chaired by Lord Mark Malloch-Brown, President of Open Society Foundations and hosted by Philanthropy Company CEO, Caroline Underwood OBE, where this challenge will be explored by our expert panel;

  • Katherina Rosqueta – Founding Executive Director of the Center for High Impact Philanthropy at the University of Pennsylvania.
  • W Christopher Stewart – Chief Grants Officer the Templeton Religion Trust
  • Jenny Oppenheimer – Lankelly Chase, co-founder of Future Foundations UK  and European Steering Group for the Edge Funders Alliance.
  • Garth Japhet – CEO of South African NGO Heartlines
