Heritage & Philanthropy: turning public passion into pounds
Chairman: Loyd Grossman OBE FSA, Chairman of the Heritage Alliance and external member to DCMS Philanthropy Programme Management Board.
Speakers: Martin Kaufman, Martin Kaufman Philanthropy; Nick Blinco, Director of Development and Alumni Relations, University of Birmingham; Anna Southall, Trustee, Barrow Cadbury Trust.
How do you persuade people that culture is just as important to the wellbeing of the community as other causes seeking their financial support? This debate explores philanthropy in a competitive market.
Accessing donors and corporate sponsors, especially outside London, is a huge challenge for heritage interests. Diminishing public funds can be devastating for not-for-profit organisations but the vigorous heritage movement and the deep bond between people and place have huge potential. To launch and support The Heritage Alliance’s major new capacity-building programme Giving to Heritage, this Debate will develop, clarify and promote the case for philanthropy as a significant source of revenue for our heritage and the many activities that it inspires.
