Last week the Philanthropy Company gathered for a festive drink in the heart of the Olympic park, East London. In the afternoon the team came and shared updates from our work – from the University of Buckingham, to Chelsea Academy, and to the International Committee of the Red Cross – and thought about how the Company will go forward in 2016 and beyond. We have some exciting projects underway along with our client work, and are all looking forward to another year working with exceptional people and organisations.
To celebrate the end of a great year the Philanthropy Company team toured the Olympic Park where plans for Olympicopolis are taking shape; pausing under a giant sparkly Christmas tree at Westfield Stratford!
Thank you to all our clients and contacts for the opportunity to work with you on many wonderful projects.
We wish you a Happy Christmas and a wonderful (philanthropic) 2016!
Bath is a city founded on wealth and prosperity. The word ‘Philanthropy’ derives its meaning from the Greek meaning ‘for the love of humanity’. Bath and its gorgeous surrounds were created for the enjoyment of its people; founded on culture, learning, graceful architecture, and the world famous Spa.
29% of charitable giving comes from London and over 60% of the UK’s wealth. So what are the implications for philanthropy in a regional city like Bath?
Yesterday, the Philanthropy Company launched its Foundations in Philanthropy course and welcomed 9 individuals – from trustees to CEOs to senior development staff – to an intimate and informative day of training in the beautiful Somerset House.
