April 19th to 22nd 2022

PhiLab’s 2022 National Conference

Re-imagining Philanthropy will be an opportunity to participate in the writing of a narrative that proposes mapping out a philanthropy that draws on different traditions – Indigenous and non-Indigenous, Western and non-Western across Turtle Island to reinvigorate the age-old traditions of giving and sharing, caring and solidarity, and to reinvigorate the values of equity, respect for identity, and justice in all its forms.

Re-imagining Philanthropy will allow you to participate in a conversation that has been thought up differently for our different world. The program was designed to make heard a variety of voices, carriers of knowledge, ideas, proposals, claims, and testimonies for a better world. Together, we will be able to draw the contours of a philanthropy that meets the conditions necessary for the success of a social and ecological transition.

The objectives of the conference are to:

  • Identify existing tensions, discuss opportunities, and prioritize our thinking about philanthropy in the post-COVID era.
  • Reflect on the modalities and conditions that need to be in place to meet the current and future needs of the philanthropic sector.
  • Consolidate the cross-fertilization of knowledge between the academic, social and philanthropic communities.

 Target audience: Professionals from the philanthropic ecosystem, the public sector, civil society organizations, and academia.
