Philanthropy is one of the main focuses of Phase 2 of the ExCEL3 Project. The Philanthropy Lab provides capacity building programmes series for knowledge exchange among change makers in the Greater China region and worldwide. We aim to leverage evidence-based philanthropic models and to connect different segments of philanthropy in the context of social governance and innovation.
In the training provided by the Lab , we will analyse the motivation and mission of philanthropists and foundations using case studies of nonprofits that seek resources through entrepreneurial social innovation. Cases of success, effectiveness and failure will all be discussed. Participants will examine the fundamental principles for rallying community support, the behaviour and protocols of Giving and Asking in the public sphere, and most importantly the values underpinning these actions.
Participants in the Philanthropy Lab will have improved understanding of
