As a legacy from the era of the Giving Campaign, the Institute will be hosting the annual Giving Debate on the evening of Monday 11 July 2005, forming a core part of the National Convention 2005's networking and evening entertainment programme.
Giving in modern times is often dramatic, but does it match the vision and impact of Victorian philanthropy? This is the topic that will be explored by the high-profile and diverse panel of speakers on the night. Also addressing the largest ever UK fundraising appeal, panellists will look back, six months after the event, at the impact of the Asian tsunami on charities and invite attendees to comment on the changing landscape of UK giving.
Panellists will include David Aaronovitch, a journalist from The Guardian and The Observer, and Tom Sheabbeare, director of charities for HRH the Prince of Wales, among others.
Delegates who are attending the Convention on 11 July are invited to the debate.
