Event description
A panel series illuminating the diverse identities, perspectives and experiences within Canada's philanthropic community

About this event

What does the future of charitable giving look like? Through a series of panel discussions we will explore the struggles, politics and possibilities within the charitable sector. Drawing on the diverse voices of philanthropists and community leaders, Generous Futures aims to shed a new light on equity and belonging in Canada.

What does giving look like from an Indigenous lens? How do colonial ways of giving continue to harm and exclude Indigenous peoples? This discussion will address how the charitable sector needs to reconcile with its “saviour complex” in order to move forward. Our panelists will wade through the issues and possibilities in reimagining the future of giving and sharing on Turtle Island.
