Terry Farris has been working with individual and corporate philanthropists in Asia Pacific for ten years. ‘Philanthropy in Asia is different from that of North America and Europe,’ he says, ‘Philanthropy is so engrained in the family culture in Asia that it is hard to tell where philanthropy begins and ends in the family structure.’
What are the distinctive features of Asian philanthropy? How is it changing? And are philanthropy advisory services emerging to support the growth of philanthropy in the region? These are some of the questions put to him by Alliance.
