    The Philanthropy Edition

    Global philanthropy is at a turning point. It’s under pressure to play a more central role in global development, as advocates hope the world’s ultra-wealthy can help to fill the funding gap. But that has also brought increased scrutiny, with philanthropists facing more challenges over transparency, accountability, and the influence of private individuals. Meanwhile, as a new generation of philanthropists emerges, non-traditional approaches are coming to the fore — from collaborative philanthropy to trust-based giving — that might enable donors to achieve more bang for their buck. We’re bringing together a panel of experts from across the sector to offer inside insight into these changes at a pivotal moment. We’ll discuss:

    • The growing role of philanthropy in global development and humanitarian aid.
    • How donors are responding to increasing scrutiny.
    • The rise of non-Western and non-traditional donors.
    • How philanthropy is engaging with issues like localization and decolonization.

    This event is part of our popular Leader Roundtable series. Each month, for Pro members, Devex hosts virtual roundtable discussions with global development leaders to explore how their work is evolving and to hear their insights on key issues and trends. We also ask for advice for those hoping to follow in their footsteps and invite our audience to submit their most pressing questions.
