Learn what it means to be strategic and how to ensure programmes are evidence-based. Understand how to leverage brand equity for collaboration so that partnerships can be mutually rewarding. Explore the range of financial instruments and models that can help you deliver sustainable outcomes at scale. Leave with a new perspective on increasing the impact of your philanthropy in the developing world. Build a community of peers committed to catalysing greater philanthropic impact.

The programme explores how philanthropic capital can best be deployed to deliver impact and long-term system change. Fellows will analyse many of the challenges and opportunities that face emerging market philanthropists in trying to align work with national development plans, the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the need to deliver high-impact sustainable outcomes at scale.

This is a hybrid programme involving a mix of virtual sessions and an in-person convening at the AVPN South Asia Summit 2023 in Mumbai.

The programme will be co-facilitated by the Centre for Strategic Philanthropy (CSP), a research centre based at the University of Cambridge Judge Business School. The CSP is a leading hub of actionable knowledge working to catalyse greater philanthropic impact from the world’s fastest growing regions.
