NYU Heyman Center for Philanthropy and Fundraising
Leadership Summit on Global Philanthropy


NYU George H. Heyman, Jr. Center
 for Philanthropy and Fundraising
 To Hold
Leadership Summit on Global Philanthropy


Think Tank Summit Will Highlight Changes in Fundraising and Philanthropy in the United States and Abroad As A Result of Globalization and the Advent of Technology


Many nonprofits and NGOs around the world, victims of reduced public sector financing, are now looking to the United States for lessons in raising funds as independent bodies. Likewise, non-profits here, many of whom have been struck not only by the recession but also by fraudulent investments as revealed in the Bernie Madoff and Allen Stanford cases, are looking around the world for new ideas in innovative fundraising and anti-fraud models.  With that in mind, New York University?s George H. Heyman, Jr. Center for Philanthropy and Fundraising is convening a
 Think Tank of representatives from over 40 Institutes for its Global Philanthropy Leadership Summit,
to be held from February 17 to 19 in New York.


Key speakers will include Dame Stephanie Shirley, Ambassador for Philanthropy of the United Kingdom;  Dr. John Sexton, President of New York University; Sir C. Duncan Rice, former Principal of the University of Aberdeen; Stacy Palmer, Editor, Chronicle of Philanthropy; Dr. Robert Lapiner, Dean, NYU School of Continuing and Professional Studies; Dr. L. Jay Oliva, President Emeritus, New York University;  and Jean-Paul Warmoes, Executive Secretary, King Baudouin Foundation United States and Director, International Relations,
 King Baudouin Foundation.


Representatives from 40 institutions from throughout the world are coming together to attend a frank exchange of ideas in a think tank summit meeting on global philanthropy called by the Heyman Center for Philanthropy and Fundraising (
within the New York University School of Continuing and Professional Studies (NYU-SCPS).

Taking place at the NYU Kimmel Center from Thursday, February 17 through Saturday, February 19, 2011,

The Leadership Summit on Global Philanthropy
will highlight the changes in fundraising and philanthropy in the United States and abroad as a result of globalization and the advent of technology.


Philanthropy today, like every other aspect of life, has gone global, said Naomi Levine, executive director of the Heyman Center.  New trends driven by the advent of technology have clearly played a major role in this globalization.


Levine continued, Many institutions abroad have learned from the Internet that 1.4 million nonprofits in the US raised $306 billion dollars last year. How can the institutions abroad apply this American model of fundraising to supplement the reduced financial aid many of them now receive from
 their governments
  American organizations, on the other hand, are interested in exploring the approach that many institutions in other parts of the world are now using to learn whether they can improve the American model.  The walls are clearly down and the institutions, as diverse as their geography, are learning from one another.


It is in this spirit of exchanging ideas and learning from one another that this Summit is being called.  Representatives from many important nonprofit organizations from throughout the world, such as universities, museums, libraries, and social service agencies are attending.


Keynote speakers include:

    Dame Stephanie Shirley, Ambassador for Philanthropy of the United Kingdom, will launch the three-day conference with a keynote address on the evening of Thursday, February 17, 2011;

Dr. John Sexton, President of New York University;

Sir C. Duncan Rice, former Principal of the
of Aberdeen.

  Stacy Palmer, Editor, Chronicle of Philanthropy;

    Dr. Robert Lapiner, Dean, NYU School of Continuing and Professional Studies;

   Dr. L. Jay Oliva, President Emeritus,
New York

    Mr. Jean-Paul Warmoes, Executive Secretary, King Baudouin Foundation United States and Director, International Relations, King Baudouin Foundation.


Other major speakers are scheduled to address the Conference, including experts in the fields of major gifts, technology and social media in fundraising, foundation and corporate philanthropy, ethics, annual campaigns, board governance, and other aspects of philanthropy and fundraising.


Registration for the three-day conference is now open online at
