Family and philanthropy: Swiss Philanthropy Foundation intervention during Philanthropy Day 2019

Organized by the Fondazione Lang, this major event in Europe brings together international actors and experts in the philanthropy sector.

Sabrina Grassi, Director of Operations of the Swiss Philanthropy Foundation, will participate in the seventh edition of the event and will speak at the “Family and Philanthropy” panel, where she will present the solutions proposed by the Swiss Philanthropy Foundation to support families in the realization of their philanthropic projects. Thanks in particular to the sheltered fund model, which allows philanthropists and their families to devote themselves fully to the projects to be supported, while freeing themselves from administrative burdens within a framework of good governance and within an established and trusted structure.

Swiss Philanthropy Foundation also supported the meetings of the “New Gen Council”: interactive workshops bringing together young philanthropists, who together address in a concrete way issues related to their philanthropic project, governance, but also their contribution and their personal approach within family philanthropy.

In collaboration with the Fondation du Verbier Festival, the Swiss Philanthropy Foundation organises the “Verbier Festival Philanthropy Forum”; meetings in the form of workshops and conferences to share our knowledge between generations and encourage philanthropic initiative. In 2018, transmission was featured at a round table entitled “Transmission, Music and Philanthropy” and a workshop will also be devoted to this theme in 2020.

The 7th edition of Philanthropy Day entitled: “New Philanthropy’: trends, insights, opportunities” will be held in Milan on 24 October 2019. For more information and to register.
