MENA Summit 2018
Modernizing Strategic Philanthropy in MENA (Invite only)
Thursday, February 8, 2018 / 11:15 am - 12:15 pm
While philanthropy in its broadest sense has been deeply and traditionally embedded in the Middle East for centuries, organized philanthropy is a relatively new concept in the region. At the same time, tracking data and scholarly analysis are playing catchup to an emerging marketplace of social impact ideas and a flurry of philanthropic activity that is happening in real time.
This session will look at local examples of emergent philanthropy, encouraging peer learning and an action-oriented conversation that will serve as a powerful catalyst for the nascent, but dynamic and bourgeoning, philanthropic and social investment sector in MENA.
