AFP South Asian Philanthropy Conference Updates
Yesterday was the much-anticipated South Asian Philanthropy Conference hosted by the Association of Fundraising Professionals Toronto Chapter. Held at the gorgeous Toronto Reference Library, 180 participants turned up on a snowy day to hear from philanthropists and nonprofit leaders about giving and fundraising in the South Asian community.
I was honoured to moderate the panel of philanthropists on behalf of SAPP (left). The distinguished panel included (from left to right) Dr. Terry Papneja, Neena Kanwar, and keynote speaker Aditya Jha.
I was so inspired to see this landmark event finally happen after all these years. We at SAPP had been hoping for a gathering just like this – full of inspired South Asians and non-South Asians, talking with each other about giving, fundraising, diversity, and inclusion. I’ll write a lot more about the event in the days and weeks to come, but for now, you can check out real-time tweets about the action at #inclusivegiving and @ArchanaSAPP!
