ASIAN VENTURE PHILANTHROPY NETWORK (AVPN) LANCIA L’ASIAN GENDER NETWORK
Si tratta della prima rete pan-asiatica che muove risorse e capitali a favore di cause e programmi, che si concentrano sull’empowerment di donne e ragazze in Asia, per guidare l’uguaglianza di genere nel continente.
Il network nasce dal desiderio di diverse realtà di confrontarsi con i propri pari per portare un cambiamento positivo nelle traiettorie di vita di ragazze e donne in Asia. L’obiettivo finale è ridurre il tempo necessario per eliminare il divario di genere nel continente, pari, ad oggi, a 163 anni secondo le stime del World Economic Forum.
LA NUOVA NORMALITÀ ORA: REIMMAGINARE IL CAPITALISMO PER IL NOSTRO FUTURO
La serie di webinar gratuiti, organizzata da GIIN (Global Impact Investing Network), nasce con l’obiettivo di rivelare i cambiamenti sistemici in corso, imparando direttamente dall’esperienza di coloro che li stanno portando avanti.
Il primo evento, che si terrà online il 20 aprile alle ore 15, si focalizzerà sulla crescita economica inclusiva e coinvolgerà Darren Walker, Presidente di Ford Foundation, la cofondatrice e CEO di GIIN, Amit Bouri e avrà come keynote speaker Carol Anne Hilton, CEO e cofondatrice di The Indigenomics Institute.

BUSINESS FIGHTS POVERTY: LAUNCH OF CLIMATE JUSTICE FRAMEWORK
Climate change is affecting us all, but the most severe impacts are being felt by the most vulnerable people. This new framework explores what climate justice means in practice and the actions that business can take.
This paper sets out a Business and Climate Justice Action Framework to enable businesses to support fairness in climate action in three ways, through:
- core business capabilities and operations;
- philanthropy and social investments; and
- engagement in policy dialogue and strengthening institutions.
It is intended to spark a conversation about the actions companies can take individually and in partnership with peers, governments and civil society.
30 LESSONS IN PURSUIT OF DEEP SOCIAL IMPACT: LEVERAGING AND CREATIVELY USING RESOURCES
There’s a good chance you’ve heard the phrase ‘time, talent, and treasure’ when it comes to philanthropy. Many in the field, including us at TPI, believe that a strategic, holistic approach to philanthropy involves deploying more than just financial assets. Funders of all types – individual donors, families, foundations, companies, and others – have unique resources to influence, leverage, and use to facilitate social change. Some of the most powerful examples point to a common theme: money isn’t the only tool needed to achieve deep social impact. As part four of our ‘’30 Lessons’ blog series, we offer five ways to creatively harness the power of different resources and, in turn, increase impact.
Philanthropic resources are modest compared to the scope of social problems. Creativity is needed to best leverage these resources. This type of creativity can take many forms, depending on the context. In our experience, it often starts with the research and learning that can help a funder identify tipping points or opportunities to accelerate momentum towards positive change.
CREATING THE CULTURE OF GIVING IN UKRAINE
Ukrainian social and charitable projects have made giant leaps over the past decade. Since 2014, Ukrainians have built a robust system of volunteer networks and charitable organizations that help the army, relieve poverty, and provide medical help.
Still, most charitable giving in Ukraine goes to ‘firefighting’ – solving the most urgent problems of the day, from helping the troops to providing medical assistance amid the pandemic.
While incredibly important, humanitarian causes are often one-time solutions, temporary patches that do not solve the underlying problem. To achieve the greatest cumulative effect, Ukrainian NGOs and charities need to invest in the long-term perspective.
That’s what Zagoriy Foundation is working on in Ukraine. We launched and supported over 60 projects, having spent over 56 million UAH on charitable projects in Ukraine. Our mission is to develop a culture of giving in Ukraine – both to invest in the long-term perspective and to teach others how to do it.
Advancing philanthropy for long-term causes
Ukrainians agree – charity is crucial. According to a 2019 poll, nine in ten Ukrainians think charitable giving is important, and 60 per cent perceive it as vital.
