In May 2017 will be New Zealand’s largest gathering of leaders in philanthropy. Held at Te Papa, Philanthropy New Zealand’s Philanthropy Summit 2017: Innovate for Impact is bringing together global and local thought leaders from philanthropy, business, iwi, government, investment and the community sector along with innovators for the two-day summit.

The Summit, which attracts an international audience, will focus on global and local examples of innovation in philanthropy. It will provide opportunities for attendees to learn best practice and hear success stories, first-hand, around innovation in the sector, from community engagement to investment, advocacy to technology.

Philanthropy New Zealand CEO Liz Gibbs says,

“Innovation plays an increasingly crucial role in the success of communities, organisations and even countries and can fundamentally shift the impact of philanthropy. The Philanthropy Summit 2017 will inform and inspire leaders in New Zealand to maximise their impact and learn more about game-changing strategies to improve the future for all our communities.”
