Diaspora Philanthropy
Strategies for Giving Effectively Across Borders and Engaging Others to Join You


Hosted by Bolder Giving & Worldwide Initiatives for Grantmaker Support (WINGS)
Conversation with Burcu Mirza & Jenny Hodgson
Thursday, April 2, 11:00am EST

Over the past few years diaspora giving has grown significantly stemming from the global mobility of talent and increasing wealth within diaspora communities globally. Simultaneously, philanthropic groups in developing countries are increasing their efforts to maintain ties with and fundraise from their diasporas as the internet is making it possible for dispersed communities to collaborate, organize and sustain ties across borders.

Whether you are an individual donor who is thinking about how you can give to your home country, an NGO leader within a diaspora community, or are working to build a culture of giving within your country or diaspora, join us to explore these issues in more depth.

Our presenters will share their reflections on how to overcome barriers to giving internationally, trends in global philanthropy, effective giving strategies for diaspora members, and approaches to engaging new diaspora donors.  

Burcu Mirza, longtime diaspora philanthropist and the board member of Turkish Philanthropy Funds, which seeks to maximize the impact of giving in Turkey by engaging successful diaspora members around the world.

Jenny Hodgson, Executive Director of Global Fund for Community Foundation, a grassroots grantmaker working to promote and support community philanthropy globally.
