This month marks the end of Caroline Hartnell’s tenure at Alliance magazine, and it brings us great pleasure to highlight her outstanding contributions to WINGS and to the field of philanthropy with a few words from our members and partners.
IDIS reports on the 3rd Brazilian Philanthropy Forum in São Paulo, where innovation help set the tone, and an intense and well diversified programme pointed out the “bold face of private social investment in Brazil and the world, along with inspiring philanthropists’ stories”.
In our latest interview with Paula Jancso Fabiani (IDIS), we learn how a comprehensive endowment fund law in Brazil will strengthen philanthropy infrastructure there, and what makes endowments “very important for sustainability in the future.”
In the latest in a series on charity and philanthropy in BRIC countries, Paula Fabiani (IDIS) reports on current trends in Brazil. “Brazil is a wonderful country. But we also need to improve the philanthropic infrastructure and culture of giving in our country to cope with the many social and environmental challenges we face.”
Paula Jansco Fabiani of IDIS – Institute for the Development of Social Investment – describes WINGSForum 2014: The Power of Networks as “a great event to connect and reconnect people and to bring together information that is relevant to maximize the effectiveness of grantmaking.” Our flagship event, held in Istanbul in March, brought together more than 220 members and peers from around the world to network, share and discuss issues important to the sector.
Global networks like ours cultivate the spirit of innovation through connected and informed leadership. This is why WINGSForum is so important, and why it’s been a success for the last 15 years. Now you can join us on the Road to Istanbul: A journey through networked philanthropy—our new web series that explores some of what we’ll cover in Istanbul in March. WINGSForum 2014: The Power of Networks is about innovation, leadership and community. Are you in?
WINGS, in partnership with IDIS, hosted a global Peer Learning Event (PLE) comprised of support organisations from the network to explore effective, innovative, and solution-oriented approaches to strengthen support organisations and their work.
