Tomorrow’s Philanthropy: groundbreaking research on the impact of philanthropy is part new two-year collaboration

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 11 aprile 2015

Rogare, Plymouth University’sfundraising think tank, and the Resource Alliance, have joined together in a two-year research collaboration to explore different philanthropic behaviours and how they deliver value to human wellbeing around the world.
This major research, supported by The Resource Alliance, will look at the relationships between different innovations and trends, such as social entrepreneurship, impact investment and venture philanthropy, as well as the methods of direct, donor-to-beneficiary support which cut out the ‘middleman’ nonprofit organisation.By examining the perspectives, as well as the contrasts and comparisons of each approach, Rogare will develop a rich picture of how this complex system is changing. They will also speculate what the landscape might look like a decade from now, along with the implications this will have on resource generation, policies and practice. Kyla Shawyer, chief executive of the Resource Alliance, says: “As traditional models of giving are being challenged by new kinds of social investment, it’s more crucial than ever to understand the different ways in which people give, the strengths and weaknesses, and how they work together. What are the temporary fads and what are the game-changing trends? We are delighted to be working with Adrian Sargeant and Ian MacQuillin on this groundbreaking project. We believe that this research will help fundraisers to understand these emerging models, how they affect the sector and very importantly, how they impact on social change.” Ian MacQuillin, Rogare’s director, says: “We are tremendously and genuinely excited about this collaboration with the Resource Alliance. Their ability to convene leading edge thinkers from the world of social impact and our ability to do leading edge research will help us to drive an international research agenda that will strengthen fundraising and philanthropy globally. By collaborating with the Resource Alliance, we can ensure our work will benefit all fundraisers, in all nonprofits, in all countries.”The Resource Alliance will also assist Rogare in internationalising its advisory panel of senior and emerging sector thinkers and will host a meeting of the panel at the IFC in 2015 and 2016. Kyla Shawyer, CEO of the Resource Alliance and Laura Boulton, conference and strategy director, will take up positions on the panel. Kyla will also serve on the board of the Rogare’s parent body, the Centre for Sustainable Philanthropy. Rogare is keen to hear from individuals who might be interested in joining its advisory panel. More details on how to get involved will be announced shortly.
