Breakfast Club

The Alliance Breakfast Clubs

Each quarter, the Alliance Breakfast Club brings together leading philanthropy practitioners, non-profit leaders, academics and others in London to discuss questions arising from the special feature in the latest issue of the magazine. The discussion is led by a panel of leading experts on the topic, where possible including one of the guest editors or other contributors to the special feature.

The Alliance Breakfast Clubs are free to attend and we encourage delegates from all backgrounds to join us and contribute to lively discussions about philanthropy and social investment around the world.

The next Alliance Breakfast Club – 5 July 2017
Solidarity – more in common?

If solidarity means different things to different people, how can philanthropy help to build a shared humanity? At a time of major political upheaval, the June issue of Alliance explores the complex relationship between philanthropy and solidarity and looks at the different ways that philanthropy is responding to the strains between people and states across Europe. Are there reasons to be hopeful?

The discussion will be chaired by Alliance editor Charles Keidan.
Speakers include:

  • Iona Lawrence – Director, Jo Cox Foundation
  • Keiran Goddard – Head of External Affairs, UK Association of Charitable Foundations

Other speakers to be confirmed.
