Join the Law Commission on Civil Society to reflect on the role of private philanthropy in serving the public good.

About this event

Chaired by Anoushka Kenley, this Law Family Commission on Civil Society event will launch the findings of a new set of reports on the current state of giving in the UK. We will reflect on the role of private philanthropy in serving the public good, and explore opportunities for policy makers, the social sector, advisors and philanthropists, to grow UK philanthropy and achieve even more.

PBE will kick off the event by presenting brand new research on the giving habits of the UK’s top 1% of earners. Our panellists will reflect on the state of UK philanthropy, challenges, practical changes they’d like to see and how civil society and governments can work together to grow philanthropy.

Chaired by Anoushka Kenley, and drawn from the world of policy, philanthropy, and from the charity sector, our expert panel consists of:

 Rushanara Ali MP, MP for Bethnal Green and Bow, Chair of the APPG on Philanthropy & Social Investment
