The Centre for Strategic Philanthropy

The Centre for Strategic Philanthropy (CSP) was established in September 2019 with the intent to enhance the impact of strategic philanthropy in the world’s fastest-growing regions, by bridging the gap between academics and practitioners in philanthropy.

Through a combination of rigorous research, executive education, and the convening of diverse voices, the Centre for Strategic Philanthropy help to inform, cultivate and catalyse strategic philanthropy in and from emerging markets and aim to strengthen the broader philanthropic ecosystem by inspiring collaboration between international and local impact-oriented initiatives and organisations.

The Centre for Strategic Philanthropy first published research examined the responses to the COVID-19 pandemic by philanthropists and foundations in high-growth markets, such as developing economies in parts of Asia, Africa and the Middle East. Their findings will be presented and discussed at Talking Philanthropy 2021.

“Our hopes for Talking Philanthropy 2021”

“Philanthropic capital from Asian markets is growing rapidly and can potentially play a hugely important role in delivering on the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals in these markets and beyond. And yet too often, we fail to share which philanthropic practices best create maximum impact and how ecosystem actors can work together for system change. Talking Philanthropy provides an ideal opportunity to address this gap and unite all those interested in tackling some of the world’s most entrenched socio-economic problems a chance to drive collaboration, learn from the mistakes of the past and improve the outcomes of philanthropic investments.”
