Major European philanthropy conference comes to Belfast with support from the Lloyds TSB Foundation for Northern Ireland

600 delegates are preparing to visit Belfast for a major philanthropic investment conference, taking place from 6-8 June.

Belfast beat off stiff competition from a number of key European cities to host the 23rd European Foundation Centre Annual Conference, which has not had a UK venue for almost 20 years. The conference has been supported by a number of local and national Trusts and Foundations.

The theme of the conference is the role of philanthropy in achieving peace through social justice, as it was revealed by the Association of Charitable Foundations that peacebuilding in Northern Ireland has benefitted from £175 million in philanthropic grants.

A platform of high-profile speakers has been arranged, including Jeff Raikes, CEO of the world’s largest philanthropic organisation, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
