Philanthropy summit 2019

15 May 9:00am - 17 May 5:00pm
Te Papa Wellington

Every two years the philanthropic and grantmaking sector comes together for networking, learning, challenge and celebration. The next Philanthropy summit will be in May 2019.


This is your chance to contribute content, help set the agenda and make sure that the Philanthropy Summit 2019 reflects the issues and challenges that matter most.


We all need the Summit to be created by thought leaders, disruptors, innovators, best practice developers, collaborators, change-makers and strategists. If that sounds like you, we want to hear your offers to run workshops or contribute other content!


Summit 2019 Theme
Summit 2019 is focusing on our practice as philanthropists and grantmakers. PNZ and the Summit Advisory Committee want to use our biennial gathering to look at how we do things rather than what we fund.


General Guidelines:
We are looking for proposals that:
a. Show a link to the theme and one of the 4 tracks
b. Include points of view and reference to 2 cross-cutting issues that impact all our work– we want
these voices to be part of all workshops and content rather than in separate isolated streams:
o relationships with Mana Whenua
o how we engage young people
c. Are highly interactive and involve as much time for participants to explore and discuss as for
d. Are challenging, inspiring and disruptive
e. Involve grantseekers as presenters and storytellers
f. Provide practical examples, insights, templates and learnings that other philanthropists and
grantmakers can use.


If you want to express interest in delivering content in the 2019 Summit, please send an email ( ) by 15 September 2018 that answers the following questions:
a. Which of the 4 tracks does your proposal relate to? (Noting that there will be a crossover between tracks.)
b. Which of the 8 possible formats would you prefer to use?
c. Name of the session
d. A summary of the issues and topics you want to cover
e. A summary of how your proposal meets the 6 general guidelines above
f. Who will present or facilitate your session?
