The new minister responsible for charities at the Department of Community, Rural and Gaeltacht Affairs, John Curran TD, will address the Irish Charities Tax Reform Group conference this week.
The conference, ‘Promoting Philanthropy, Playing Our Part,’ will focus on trends in philanthropy from both the national and international perspective and the part the charitable sector can play in fostering philanthropy.
The keynote address will be given by Michael Green who co-authored ‘Philanthrocapitalism: how the rich can save the world.’ The book gives a detailed analysis on the increase in philanthropy throughout the world.
Other speakers include former CEO of Atlantic Philanthropies John Healy who will draw on his experience of philanthropy. There will also be discussions on annual reports and a presentation on the Guidestar Project and its role in philanthropy.
The conference will take place on Thursday, 6th November at the Morrison Hotel in Dublin.
