Global Philanthropy & Beyond - Waislitz Oration
Tuesday, 23rd October 2012 at 10:41 am

The developer of the first Index of Global Philanthropy, Dr Carol Adelman will give the 2012 Heloise Waislitz Oration, titled Global Philanthropy and Beyond, in Melbourne in November.

Her presentation will focus on how global philanthropy has transformed foreign assistance and how new financial mechanisms such as social stock exchanges, remittances, impact investing and social entrepreneurship are transforming traditional philanthropy.

Dr Adelman is Senior Fellow and Director, Center for Global Prosperity, Hudson Institute in the USA, where she assists Not for Profits and corporations to develop and communicate their global philanthropy programs.

She developed and oversees the annual Index of Global Philanthropy and Remittances, described as the first comprehensive compilation of international private giving to the developing world.

According to Dr Adelman wealthy nations are in the middle of a paradigm shift in how best to promote economic growth and well-being abroad.

“Entirely new forms of giving using new financial mechanisms are changing the face of international philanthropy as we know it,” Dr Adelman said.

The Heloise Waislitz Fellowship was established in 2001 at the Asia-Pacific Centre for Social Investment and Philanthropy (APCSIP) by Swinburne University of Technology and the Pratt Foundation, to recognise Heloise Waislitz, who is also the Foundation's Chair.

The fellowship brings leading figures in the philanthropy field to Australia to research, teach and promote philanthropy and social investment.
