We define philanthropy as the giving of resources in an engaged and strategic way for maximum impact and in a tax efficient manner. It can include the giving of money, assets, time, talent, voice and one’s social capital. We believe in the power of philanthropy as a great social connector and the source of many great opportunities.

City Philanthropy

A Wealth of Opportunity

Live crowdfunding with The Childhood Trust

6:00 pm

The Funding Network is teaming up with The Childhood Trust to bring you a special event focused on alleviating childhood poverty in London.

You will meet three outstanding charities taking part in The Childhood Trust’s Summer Give matched funding programme. Your money will be matched by The Childhood Trust and the Summer Give campaign meaning you truly get a bigger bang for your buck!

With childhood poverty on the increase, this leveraged funding will provide essential holiday activities for children marginalised and forgotten during the summer break. Your support will ensure children have enough to eat, receive caring supervision, are safe on the streets and get the chance to participate in positive activities.

Join us at the magnificent Montcalm Royal Hotel and help us give children a summer to remember. You can buy your tickets now and find details of the organisations pitching below. We’d love to see you there!
