So your organization has a mission and a set of values you believe in. You're ready to go to take on the world! But what about your culture of philanthropy?

Your what?!?

It's a phrase that gets used a lot. But what does it mean, how do you measure it and why does it matter, particularly in this age of global connectivity?

'Culture' is defined in many ways, but in this case, we are referring to your beliefs and philosophy. 'Philanthropy' is Greek in origin, meaning "love of humanity". So your culture of philanthropy is the depth to which every single person in your organization believes fundraising is an important priority and key to delivering your mission.

Do you want to learn more about the culture of philanthropy and why it is critical in your organization? Then be our guest for breakfast in April and hear how our Global Philanthropic CEO Guy Mallabone approaches this topic. As an added bonus, meet your new Ontario consulting team!
