Recommended Contribution: GBP £350
A one-day programme on the use of technology in philanthropy, how can it be used to maximise impact, and where the dangers lie.
Technology is changing the world around us at an incredible speed. But philanthropy remains largely unchanged. This presents a long- term strategic threat to philanthropy, to charity and social enterprise, and to the pace of social change.
This one-day programme on technology and philanthropy, curated by Fran and Will Perrin at Indigo Trust, is a digital 101 for philanthropists.
If you are confused by blockchain or AI; want to embrace technology in your grant making and social investment and don’t know how; are interested in using technology to leapfrog traditional development patterns; or are a social entrepreneur looking to have greater impact - this programme is for you. Come and hear from an extraordinary range of high calibre, expert speakers in a confidential environment, surrounded by peer philanthropists, eager to learn and enhance impact and effectiveness.
Speakers include: Philip Colligan, CEO of Raspberry Pi and former Director of Nesta’s Innovation Lab; Martha Lane Fox CBE, founder of Doteveryone,org.uk, lastminute.com and former UK Digital Champion; Fran Perrin, Founder of the Indigo Trust and 360 GivingRichard Sargeant, CCO of ASI DataLab on Artificial Intelligence; and Tom Steinberg, Founder and Director of mySociety and advisor to Code for America.
The Philanthropy Workshop will host this programme, and UBS are generously providing their office space.
A recommended contribution of £350 towards covering the costs of putting this programme on would be highly appreciated.
