AAGEF - Major Trends in Philanthropy
Wed, Jun 27, 2018 - 6:00 pm

Presenter: KBF Canada Executive Director.
Donors want to be able to identify clearly the added value of their grants and to make a real difference. New philanthropic tools are emerging in the sector: we speak about Venture Philanthropy, Social Impact Bonds, Impact Investing or Social Finance, ...
The session will be an opportunity to learn and reflect about these new tools, inspired by the profit sector, and which have the ambition to generate more impact, more 'Social Return on Investment' in the philanthropic sector.

KBF FOUNDATION CANADA was established at the initiative of the Brussels-based King Baudouin Foundation to allow Canadian donors to participate in charities spearheaded by KBF CANADA.

Benoît Fontaine, its Executive Director, has a Master of Laws from Université de Louvain-la-Neuve. He launched the Venture Philanthropy Fund, an investment fund that actively helps organizations to develop and restructure by coaching them on good governance, long-term strategy, business models, and impact assessment. This fund is operated in partnership with private sponsors and consultancy companies such as Bain and Accenture, which are all driven to maximize the impacts of philanthropic actions.

We will be hosted by the law firm Aird & Berlis, whose partner, Donald Johnston, is the Honorary Consul of the Kingdom of Belgium in Ontario.
