Strengthening Community Philanthropy
7 March 2023 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
Spread across multiple settings, fields and disciplines, the notion of community philanthropy is appealing and multi-faceted; it presents an ever-changing arrangement of principles, practices, patterns and perceptions that cover a diversity of interrelated ideas and ideals. However, knowledge and understanding of community philanthropy remain emergent; more diversity in views and voices and a better critically reflective synthesis of empirical and theoretical insights are needed. Tobias Jung will discuss how a more decentred approach to understanding community philanthropy can help us address these challenges. In order to strengthen community philanthropy in Europe, this session explores the community philanthropy ‘kaleidoscope’ as a way to explore, integrate and reflect on community philanthropy’s diverse facets.
