Description

But why should you do this? And what's the impact on local charities? As the local Community Foundation, our work is to help the communities of Kent by harnessing the resources of local philanthropists. Since we were established 18 years ago, we have distributed £35M in charitable giving thanks to the generosity of local Kent individuals, families and businesses.

We are passionate about securing more funding for local charities by encouraging professional advisers to talk more frequently about philanthropy and giving. Research has shown that High Net Worth individuals are likely to give 17 x more to charitable causes if philanthropy is discussed by a trusted adviser.

Today’s session will discuss philanthropy, particularly in its local context and how professional advisers can help their clients make the most of their giving. As part of the session we will be demonstrating a fund holder journey including the experience a fund holder has with their professional adviser and the impact their giving has on the local charity sector.

Our Speakers:

Josephine McCartney
Josephine lives in Kent and has worked in the charitable sector for more than 18 years. She was previously Director of Fundraising and Communications for Imperial College Healthcare Charity, an independent, grant-making charity raising funds for projects, research, equipment and training at five London hospitals. Before this, Josephine held a variety of strategic positions with the Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB). She is a volunteer Enterprise Adviser, for the Enterprise Adviser Network, supporting Careers Adviser’s in schools across Kent and Medway and the Co-Chair of the Kent Children & Young People’s Steering Group.

Sarah Salway
Sarah Salway is a poet, novelist and journalist. Based in Tunbridge Wells, she is a trustee of the Blackthorn Trust, and the Amelia Scott Centre. A TEDx speaker, she is also helping to organise the next TEDxRTW event in 2020. She and her husband, Francis, have been fundholders with both the Kent Community Foundation and the London Community Foundation since 2010.

Jenny McQuire
Jenny McQuire from Boys and Maughan will also be giving us an insight into the fund holder journey from a professional adviser perspective and a representative from one of our funded charities will be giving us a short insight into the impact relatively small amounts of funding can make.
