A Dialogue in Family Philanthropy

Dates: June 7-9, 2015

Location: Hong Kong

An intimate gathering of like-minded Family Foundation Principals from the Greater China region.

A unique opportunity for Principals to share and learn from each other, to meet world-class practitioners, and to engage in conversations on social innovation, family philanthropy and impact investment.

We hope that the lessons, connections, and discussions arising during the Dialogue will catalyze and amplify efforts to create real impact in the region.
