MENA Summit program 3
Modernizing Strategic Philanthropy in MENA (Invite only)
Thursday, February 8, 2018 / 11:15 am - 12:15 pm

While philanthropy in the broadest sense has been deeply and traditionally embedded in the Middle East for centuries, organized philanthropy is a relatively new concept. At the same time, tracking data and scholarly analysis are playing catchup to an emerging marketplace of social impact ideas and a flurry of activity that is happening in real time.

This session will look at local examples of emergent philanthropy such as the "Arab Giving Network", encouraging peer learning and action-oriented conversation that could well serve as a powerful catalyst for the nascent, but dynamic and burgeoning, philanthropic/social investment sector in MENA.
