How to grow philanthropic income
Wed, April 5, 2017, 3:00 PM – 5:00 PM BST
Are you looking to grow the number of high value donors who support your charity?
Would you like to develop a new or existing major donor programme?
At this meeting, we will explore what entices supporters to make large gifts to charities and what we can do to encourage higher levels of philanthropic support.
Joining us to share their vast knowledge and experience are:
John Pepin, is Chief Executive of Philanthropy Impact whose purpose is to increase philanthropic giving and social investment across Europe by working with wealth/ professional advisors to High Net Worth Individuals (HNWI). John's recent research shines a light on why people give and what encourages them to give more.
There are approximately 340,000 wealthy individuals in the UK with more than £1 million in personal wealth. In 2015, Philanthropy Impact estimated they gave £1.3 billion to good causes. While only 12% of the UK’s wealthy population received advice from professional advisers, their donations accounted for 58% of the total (£770 million). Ultra-nigh NWI when supported by advisers on their donor journey give 17 times more - £335k vs. £19K.
Philanthropy Impact's research shows that those who take professional advice give more than those who do not. Yet the UK’s wealthy scored the advice they received just 5.9 out of 10 - plenty of room for improvement.
By increasing the number of professional advisers who give philanthropic advice and improving the quality of advice given, we believe that philanthropic giving would increase exponentially
At this event John will present the research and discuss the implications, leading to more and better giving.
Helen Wilde, High Sheriff of Bristol, takes a proactive approach to her philanthropic giving and is a vocal proponent encouraging others to be more philanthropic.
As well as learning from our experts, there will be ample opportunity to hear about colleagues' experiences of what has worked well and for you to ask questions and give examples.
