AFP South Asian Philanthropy Conference Updates

January 26, 2013

PanelYesterday 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 rightDr. 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!

Many thanks to Krishan Mehta, Aditya Jha, Afshaan Kohari, Aarthi Sethi, the AFP, and all the participants for such an exhilarating day!
