Opening Address by Guest-of-Honor
Philanthropy as a partnership with government to build an inclusive society, the need for collective action, and the role of Donor Advised Funds (DAFs) like SymAsia Foundation.
Philanthropy in the next decade: Focus on 'Together' theme – collective impact, collaborative platforms, DAFs and social businesses. Underlying all these is the desire to be more strategic in philanthropy.
Presentation on Philanthropy White Paper: A generation of change-makers
Philanthropy is no longer just a good-to-have, but increasingly a mission-critical activity among the wealthy. The new generation of philanthropists are not just passive funders, but seek to be co-creators of social solutions. They no longer stick to one mode of doing good but move fluidly up and down the impact spectrum, engaging in grantmaking and social investing according to need and context, and focusing on ecosystem change. Additionally as they move into roles of influence in their family businesses, they are embedding an impact lens into business strategy, tying growth to social progress and redefining the practice of philanthropy.
