The fourth in our Enduring Ideas series of lectures

Philanthropy rouses passionate debate among both advocates and detractors. But why are philanthropists regarded as paternalistic, even elitist? Do the benefits of giving outweigh such negative perceptions? And can we find some common ground between its critics and champions? Join Dr Beth Breeze, University of Kent, who will discuss these and other issues, followed by an open discussion. Chaired by Sir Stuart Etherington, Chief Executive of NCVO.

In partnership with the Academy of Social Sciences
