Can the city lead the way in promoting a culture of philanthropy in the UK? That was the premise of a 2007 Policy Exchange report called Give and Let Give out of which has come a three-year campaign: City Philanthropy - A Wealth of Opportunity. In this discussion with leading philanthropists and experts we explore how and why the City is best placed to lead the way in creating a culture of philanthropy in the UK and also discuss the barriers to growing a giving culture.
Those attending the event will be encouraged to take part in the discussion.
There will be an opportunity to view the exhibition and a drinks reception will follow the debate. Places are free but strictly limited and booking is essential.
